Wrong...but right enough

Abstract

In recent weeks I have been forced to think a bit about right and wrong...not in the sense of good and bad but rather in the sense of accurate and inaccurate. When I was at school, my metal-work teacher very proudly boasted that - in his workshop - we worked to an accuracy of 1/1000 of an inch (it was a long time ago). By contrast, my woodwork teacher - never one to be out-done - insisted that in his workshop we had much higher standards than that since we worked till it was right. I was never quite sure which of them was the more demanding.
