The Most Boring Day In History Was said to be April 11th, 1954
Scientist William Tunstall-Pedoe developed a software to determine that April 11th, was the most boring day ever. Usually in other days, someone famous was born, someone notorious died, or something significant happened. On April 11th, 1954, a Sunday, was nothing was found. Tunstall- Pedoe used his sophisticated search engine, True Knowledge.  

"It occurred to us that we are able to objectively measure the importance of every day in history. Some days are  highly eventful and on some days far less happens and we can also objectively estimate the importance of these events. For fun we wrote the program and set it going. When the results came back the winner (or perhaps loser) was April  11th, 1954 – a Sunday in the 1950s. 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."

Fête de la Romaine   Translation:  Romaine lettuce Day (French Republican) The 22nd day of the Month of Germinal in the French Republican Calendar

Joke of The Day

A real woman is a man's best friend. She will never stand him up and never
let him down. She will reassure him when he feels insecure and comfort him
after a bad day.
She will inspire him to do things he never thought he could do; to live
without fear and forget regret. She will enable him to express his deepest
emotions and give in to his most intimate desires.
She will make sure he always feels as though he's the most handsome man in
the room and will enable him to be the most confident, sexy, seductive, and
invincible. . .

No wait... Sorry... I'm thinking of beer. That's what beer does... Never

Quote of The Day

“To win, all you need to do is get up one more time than you fall down.”
