Objective truth is a theoretically simple concept but in practice the truth is extremely hard to grasp. We know there are a massive number of things we don know, and many of the things we do know, we know only partly, meaning the truth is very elusive and we almost always working with an imperfect version of the truth. Add to this the fact that well being or “serving life” is extremely hard to quantify, and this means that truth and well being may not always appear to align with one another.

Badlands National Park is located about an hour southeast of Rapid City, South Dakota. The Badlands are a series of beautiful, colorful, and unique geologic formations. The park also is famous for the large amount of fossils that were found there. I collect license plates, and through most of New York license plate history a yellowish to orange color with black or blue letters and numbers was by far the most common. From just the ones on my wall there is the 1929, ’31, ’35, ’44, ’51, ’52, ’58, ’62, ’63, and the long run of orange plates from 1973 to 1986, and many more years besides. I really like the blue with orange letter ones from 1966 to 1973 that can be used on musclecars now, I don’t really like the white based plates, I think the US government was pushing for states to make a more uniform white based plate back in the 1980’s.
This is a consequence of high profile incidents where the judgement of the human eye has been called into question. During the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, in the Quarter final knockout stages, a shot from England player Frank Lampard bounced off the underside of the crossbar and down towards the goal line, the German goalkeeper soon after cleared the ball away. Whether or not the ball crossed line the line would appear to come down to personal interpretation of the event and likely to be influenced by personal bias, certainly in the first ever competitive fixtures of the 19th Century, this would remain to be the case.
