Most Boring Day in History

An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations. - Charles de Montesquieu
Computer programmer William Tunstall-Pedoe has calculated that April 11, 1954 is the most objectively dull day since 1900. On that day the most significant events were a general election in Belgium, the birth of a Turkish academic and the death of footballer Jack Shufflebotham.

Mr Tunstall-Pedoe's computer program, called True Knowledge, was fed 300 million facts about "people, places, business and events" that made the news and this particular day was outstanding in its obscurity.

Bottom Line

"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.", said Mr Tunstall-Pedoe's .
