Expiration dates

Ok, right now, this has to stop.

I'm tired of seeing "Best if purchased by: [stamped on date]". Well, I bought it before that date. Does it matter if it was last year? I hate "Use within [number] days of opening". If I don't open it for a decade, is it still good? Let's have some simple expiration dates on every food:

Not considered fresh after: [date]
Will make you sick after: [date]
Will kill you after: [date]

Even better, have a little bar like on Energizer batteries. Squeeze the two nubs to see how close it will come to killing you. That way you can see how close something is to lethal, and make your decision based on that.
