Even if you don't happen to be getting the date out of MySQL, it can
occasionally be easier to let MySQL do your date math since it has some
nice functions for it (DATE_ADD, DATE_SUB, etc.). These things are hard to
do quickly in PHP since you have to account for leap years.
You can send MySQL (or really any SQL database) a select with hardcoded
inputs rather than pulling from tables.
