Take your guess to answer the question about the most boring day of the 20th century.

After feeding 300million facts into a new computer search engine, experts have announced there were no key news events or births and deaths of famous people.

"When the results came back, the winner was April 11, 1954 - a Sunday. 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," the Daily Mail quoted William Tunstall-Pedoe, founder of the new search engine True Knowledge, as saying.

At best, April 11 was the day Belgium had its fourth post-war general election and a Turkish academic who taught electronics was born. The day also witnessed plans for a coup d'etat in Yanaon, a French colony in India, been agreed to.

But the day could have been a lot better. History notes that Bill Haley and the Comets recorded Rock Around The Clock the next day.

According to BBC Radio, April 18, 1930, was the dullest day of the 20th century after an announcer informed the nation at the 6.30pm bulletin, "There is no news."

But the experts claim this date fell in the midst of the Great Depression and Joaquim Arcoverde de Albuquerque Cavalcanti, the first Cardinal to be born in Latin America, died on that day.

True Knowledge, which provides a direct answer to a question instead of providing a list of links like other sites such as Google, was launched online in February this year.
