Can we know something objectively?

Is it possible for me to know something objectively ?

Just feel the things around you. Check the temperature around you. A piece of cloth is warmer than a steel chair. Why do you feel they are different, even though the room temperature is same?

Now suppose there is some water on a glass. One person comes and says it is luke warm. Another person says it is cold. Why different opinions? Does it mean there is no objectivity? Can we know for sure somethings?

Post your answers ! If you are sure about them.
