Comic: Relatively Bored

This is Pi Day #014

“Hey, Dad, what’s this movie about?”
Oh… about two hours.

Oh … kids these days… they just don’t know how to play, or something… *waves stick in the air* — get off my lawn!

Ah… was that too preachy?

A little?

Yeah… maybe a little. Unfair, even. I mean, after all, we adults have been trying to make awkward conversation among ourselves for decades now. Literally. Decades! That’s … well, a lot of small talk. A lot of filled air. A lot of quality time and precious memories, right? Too much. Now give me back my phone.

What… wait… c’mon it’s not like we’re setting an example for all our kids, you know, the one’s who we’re told are spending too much time staring into the glowing screens of their devices instead of living outside the matrix. I wonder where they learned that.


It’s probably TV. Let’s go with that.

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.
