April 11, 1954: The fifties reaches its peak- uh- fifty-ness

Fifty-seven years ago today, pretty much nothing happened.

Researchers 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.

"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."

One wonders what the 24-hour cable news outlets would have covered that day...
