April 11, 1954: The most boring day in the 20th century

Cambridge Business News | Cambridgeshire Local Business & Corporate News | April 11, 1954: The most boring day in the 20th century: "“For fun we wrote the program and set it going. When the results came back the winner (or perhaps loser) was April 11, 1954 – a Sunday in the 1950s. 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 who might make that claim: Abdullah Atalar – a Turkish academic.

“The irony is though, that having done the calculation, the day is interesting for being exceptionally boring.”"
