German scientist Friedrich Soennecken filed a patent for the hole puncher

Google is paying homage to a device that has no place in the digital world: the hole puncher.

Basically, a hole puncher is used to create holes in papers to assemble and file them together. Even though workplaces have evolved over time, this hole puncher has more or less remained unchanged. It challenges whether our grip or downward force is strong enough to puncture the stack, pushing out a neat cylinder of future confetti - or whether we had to reduce the load, like a dejected weightlifter.

The German went on to establish the Soennecken office supply company and was later awarded an honorary title from the University of Bonn.

College students were already starting to worrying after losing a few weeks of time in the classroom. The faculty vote is scheduled to begin Tuesday and end Thursday.

The hole puncher was created back in 1886 by Friedrich Soennecken, a German inventor who is also responsible for thinking up ring binder.

Google on Tuesday marked the 131st anniversary of the invention of the hole puncher with a doodle.

Artist and illustrator Gerben Steenks has drawn the famous Google logo using familiar circular disks, bringing the Doodle alive when a hole puncher gives eyes to a blue sheet of paper. Soennecken, who was the son of a blacksmith, has several inventions to his credit. The second "g" is made of a paper that the hole puncher punches in the doodle. Besides the hole puncher, he invented a binder and a special nib for ink pens that are used for calligraphy.

Once he returns, Aoun tweeted, "we will listen to him about all circumstances, topics and concerns that need addressing". Saudi Arabia has stepped up its rhetoric against Hezbollah and Iran, accusing both of supporting Shiite rebels in Yemen.

Now Google has paid tribute to the well-loved tool with an delightful animation. The liveliness demonstrates a sheet of paper doing a little dance in the wake of being punched.

Google describes the hole puncher as an understated but essential artifact of German engineering. These doodles can be found on Google's website.
