DateTime.Equal returns false when true?

Code below is returning FALSE when I'd expect TRUE as comparing the SAME Dates.

Please advise

CODE
Debug.Print(Timestamp.ToString)
Debug.Print(Timestamp2.ToString)
Dim dateEqual = DateTime.Equals(Timestamp, Timestamp2)
Debug.Print(dateEqual)

OUTPUT from console
31/05/2013 16:56:19
31/05/2013 16:56:19
False

If you want to know if the dates are equal, ignoring the time portion, then:
        Dim dateEqual = DateTime.Equals(Timestamp.Date, Timestamp2.Date)

Open in new window


Or, if you want to truncate the milliseconds portions, then compare:
*From Joe over at stackoverflow.
        Dim Timestamp As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        Dim Timestamp2 As DateTime = DateTime.Now

        Timestamp = Timestamp.AddTicks(-(Timestamp.Ticks Mod TimeSpan.TicksPerSecond))
        Timestamp2 = Timestamp2.AddTicks(-(Timestamp2.Ticks Mod TimeSpan.TicksPerSecond))

        Debug.Print(Timestamp.ToString)
        Debug.Print(Timestamp2.ToString)
        Dim dateEqual = DateTime.Equals(Timestamp.Date, Timestamp2.Date)
        Debug.Print(dateEqual)

Open in new window

seems that method relies on the Ticks property of the DateTime object.
