April 11, 1954. (Yawn)

There are some days I wish it were April 11, 1854. According to computer programmer William Tunstall-Pedoe, that was the most boring day of the 20 century.

This was probably a common scene, especially in newsrooms, on April 11, 1954

The only notable, newsworthy things that happened that day was some Turkish scientist was born, a footballer died and a dull general election was held in Belgium. A real snoozer.

The way the bad news keeps coming – the continued war in Afghanistan, the wretched economy, the political gridlock in Washington, the existence of the television show “Skating With The Stars” – all make me wish for a yawner of a day like April 11, 1954.

Any readers out there remember anything that happened on April 11, 1954? Maybe for some people it wasn’t so dull.
