April 11, 1954 was the most boring day of the 20th century


What occurred on April 11, 1954? A whole lot of nothing. Well, unless you count the birth of Turkish academic Abdullah Atalar.

Researchers have dubbed April 11, 1954 the most boring day of the 20th century for its lack of news events, notable births, or news-worthy deaths. Using the Cambridge University-developed True Knowledge search engine, experts analyzed 300 million news and information tidbits to determine the undesirable distinction.

The snooze-worthy April Sunday unseated April 30, 1930, which had previously held the dullest day title because of a bulletin read that day by a BBC Radio announcer simply declaring “There is no news today.”
