To mark Swedish scientist Eva Ekeblad 293rd birthday today Google dedicates doodle with a quirky animated doodle. In turn, there was a spike in alcohol consumption in the Scandinavian country.
In 1998, the search engine founders Larry and Sergey drew a stick figure behind the second "o" of Google as a message to that they were out of office at the Burning Man festival and with that, Google Doodles were born. In the mid-1700s, she discovered how to make flour from potatoes and even how to distil the tasty tubers into vodka. This transformed the country's eating habits and staved off starvation.

Thanks to Ekeblad, potatoes helped solve the food crisis in Sweden precipitated by the lack of cereals like barley and oats. Two years later, in 1748, she became the first woman to become a member of the Academy, although three years later she was demoted to an honorary member, instead of full membership, because she was a woman.
The Doodle's graphic shows her face next to a pile of potato powder. Ekeblad's scientific work helped to prevent starvation in Sweden in the following years. She also discovered that potatoes could be used to make potato flour by cooking, crushing and drying potatoes to create flour. It was an honor that had not been bestowed on another woman for the next 203 years.
Raised in comfort among the nobility, Eva was married at just 16 to Count Claes Claesson Ekeblad, a Councillor of the Realm.
