Comic: Screens Unlimited

This is Pi Day #065

… and then you take a second and you realize that they’re chatting, gaming, writing, and coding together. Would I prefer that she was out kicking a ball around, skipping rope, or making a fort? Nah! … because at her age I was camped in front of a NES fighting over a controller with my pals.

The Script

Dad: Are you ready for the sleepover?

Kid: no … you need to add more time to my tablet

Dad: You have two hours on your daily time limit.  

Dad: Why do you need more? You’ll be with your friends.

Kid: and they’re all allowed more screen time than me!

Dad: My point is that you should just talk… play… make something together.

Kid: yeah i know!  that’s why i need my tablet

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.
