The most boring day in living memory

Cast your mind back to your most recent, sickeningly dull day. Well, it was a positive slobber-knocker compared to April 11, 1954.

Researchers say that this was 'officially' the most boring day of the 20th century. It was a Sunday.

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.

The 'highlights' of the day include a general election in Belgium and the birth of a Turkish academic. Thrilling stuff, eh? One for Marty McFly to give a wide berth.
