Who was the most boring Roman emperor?

Cambridge - A scientist from Cambridge, England, has now calculated the most boring day in history using a complex computer calculation. Here you can find out when that was.

Drum roll ........ And now it comes: The most boring day in history was April 11, 1954. The English programmer William Tunstall-Pedoe has now calculated this with the help of a computer.

The "True Knowledge" program came to this conclusion after using complex mathematical algorithms to evaluate 300 million facts, dates and names that were in the news at some point.

On April 11, 1954, a new parliament was elected in Belgium, the soccer player Jack Shufflebotham died and the Turkish electrical engineer Abdullah Atalar was born. Otherwise absolutely nothing interesting should have happened that day.

Curiosities between heaven and earth

In Germany, by the way, Hamburger SV played against Hannover 96 on April 11, 1954. HSV won the unspectacular game 2-0. And the only (!) German television program showed in the evening: "On the swinging trapeze: An international variety show from the 'Kaiserhof' in Cologne".

The British broadcaster BBC brought in another candidate for the most boring day in history: namely April 18, 1930. For the 6:30 p.m. news, the BBC radio announcer said at the time: "There is no news."

One caveat has to be made to the knowledge of the English scientist Tunstall-Pedoe: Seriously, he can only describe April 11, 1954 as the most boring day since 1900. Because his data does not go any further back.

So it is quite possible that the ancient Romans might have had a more boring day sometime in 71 AD: Horse racing in the Colosseum canceled, the amphitheatres were all crap and Emperor Vespasian didn't really know who to wage war against . Yawn!
