Double blind test in practice (ie in real life)

Objectivist goes out to a football game. There, a football hooligan punchs the objectivist in the nose well.
Now the objectivist knows that his senses can easily deceive him.
In this situation, a double blind test is required.
So he closes his eyes and asks the hooligan to close his eyes too and punch him in the nose once more.
To get the statistics, a minimum of 20 nose punchs is required.
It could easily be that after the 15th nasal punch, you either lose consciousness or your nose becomes so numb that you no longer feel anything.
The test result will be 15/20.
That is, he only imagined the first nasal punch, and the hooligan was innocent.
