William Tunstall-Pedoe, the Cambridge, England, creator of TrueKnowledge.com, a search engine for facts, said the Sunday was remarkable only as a Belgian election day and the birthday of Turkish academic Abdullah Atalar, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

"We analyzed hundreds of millions of facts about dates and famous people" to find the least eventful day, Tunstall-Pedoe said.

"Unlike a typical day in the 20th century, there were no significant deaths or births or notable events on that day," he said.

The computer scientist said the day was the least eventful since 1900.
