Anyone born on April 11, 1954?

If so, congratulations are in order:

Using algorithms and the information provided, the computer calculated the most boring day ever--a day where no major significant events took place.

So what was this uber-boring day? April 11, 1954. Tunstall-Pedoe reports that nothing of note happened on this day (except a Belgium general election, the birth of a Turkish academic and the death of a footballer).

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

But close enough that I had to do a little math to determine that I wasn't conceived on that day. I guess that could break the boredom.

But w/o internet, they would have had to wait until the next day to get the paper to know that nothing happened the previous day. So maybe the 12th was the most boring day?

Even Wikipedia's page for 1954 doesn't show anyone of consequence born (or dying) on that day...
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
