Most Boring Day In History: April 11, 1954

most boring day

On April 11, 1954, a lot of things occurred. They had to have.

However, a statement by a University of Cambridge-trained computer scientist claiming his apparently amazing computer program determined that the second Sunday in April 1954 that was April 11, 1954 was the most boring day since the start of the twentieth century is gaining traction on the Internet.

Cambridge University scientists have programmed a computer to discover the most boring day in history. After analyzing over 300 million historical data, the computer found the answer.

William Tunstall-Pedoe discovered that the 11th of April, 1954, was the most utterly boring day in recorded history.

Nothing occurred on that Sunday; no wars, no battles, and no governments were overthrown.

To be honest, politics was far from a reality show at the time. Nobody was shouting for the media’s attention.
