...by e.g. pointing your favorite web browser to https://time.is/ and
copy the time error into the middle date command line after the "-s":
"date --rfc-3339=ns &&date --rfc-3339=ns -s '+0.096 seconds' &&date \
--rfc-3339=ns "

..the first "date" command shows your computer's opinion of the time,
the second "date" command forces your opinion, right or wrong, upon
it, the third "date" command shows your computer's obedient opinion
of the time after a wee little while, aka after a few milliseconds.

..the "--rfc-3339=ns" nicely and verbosely shows you when time keeping
is best handed over to ntp, rather than trying to nail it down with
https://time.is/ reloads.

..aye, https://time.is/ will happily tell you "Your time is exact!"
anytime you're inside its error margins. ;o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
