The circle of academic stapler lives

Just last week, a student worker and I were talking about staplers and we pulled up the stapler spreadsheet, and lo and behold, that very day was the 5 year anniversary of us naming our staplers.  Our current stapler, Jasper, had survived 6 months, and we were cautiously optimistic that we’d be celebrating another stapler birthday in the Spring.

But then this morning, I awoke to the news that Jasper was gone.  All to often, our staplers don’t break or stop working, they just simply disappear.
