final time1 = DateTime.fromMillisecondsSinceEpoch(0);
final time2 = DateTime.fromMillisecondsSinceEpoch(0);

assert(!identical(time1, time2));
final time1Added = dateTimes.add(time1);
print(time1Added); // true
// A value equal to time2 exists already in the set, and the call to
// add doesn't change the set.
final time2Added = dateTimes.add(time2);
print(time2Added); // false

print(dateTimes); // {1970-01-01 02:00:00.000}
