April 11 1954: Most boring day of 20th century

275x250.jpgResearchers claim they have 'officially' discovered the most boring day of the 20th century… April 11 1954.

A team of Cambridge scientists say the day was devoid of any major news events or even the birth or death of any famous people.

They made the discovery after developing a new search engine which collates 300 million facts and can reveal what happened on certain days in history.

Running a script to compare all days from the beginning of the 20th century April 11 1954 was revealed as the most uneventful.

The 'highlight' events included a general election in Belgium and the birth of a Turkish academic… and we thought today was boring.
A spokesperson for True Knowledge said: "Nobody significant died that day, no major events apparently occurred and although a typical day in the 20th century has many notable people being born, for some reason that day had only one person that might make that claim: Abdullah Atalar - a Turkish academic.

"The irony is though, that having done the calculation, the day is now interesting for being exceptionally boring! Perhaps we need to calculate the second most boring day."
