Making Connections

Life is all about making connections with others, don’t you think?  It’s what makes life worth living.

A big shout out to the folks at for making some connections here.

First off….a little light-hearted entertainment….

Please do take note of the the license plate on the rear of the vehicle at the 00:47 mark of this video (Don’t worry…you can pause it if you need to).

Now, connections that will warm your heart….

A certain UNC Dental School grad who shall remain nameless (Spencer B. Howard, DDS), who is co-founder of Iceberg, the company now infamous for both its mouthguards and its unfailing generosity to student athletes everywhere…everywhere in Chapel Hill that is…also happens to be the gentleman who incorporated Kairobi Exotic Rentals and Transport Inc., located in…Durham, NC.

Kairobi Exotic Rentals (Or KER for short…remember that) has an employee named “H. Patrick Thomas”.  Not just an employee, but listed on official documents as “Principal”.  See….


Could the “H” possibly stand for “Haydn”?  If so, the plot certainly thickens…don’t it?

But wait, we’re just getting warmed up….

It seems that most, if not all, of Kairobi Exotic Rentals’ vehicles have NC plate numbers beginning with “KER”, and followed by a number.  Which makes this little nugget at least interesting, if not “incriminating”….


Click for a clear view

We wonder how many other Parking-gate tickets that have thus far been largely ignored cite vehicles with plates beginning with “KER”?

So, is Fats a rogue employee lending out cars willy-nilly to his friends without the company’s knowledge or authorization?  Or is it more likely that Fats is a go-between?  Considering that the gentleman listed on the articles of incorporation for Kairobi Exotic Rentals is a UNC Dental School grad, who also happens to be a co-founder of Iceberg….

Let’s just say we don’t believe in coincidences like this, shall we?

For a more complete look at these connections, please go here and have a look.

And once again, big shout out to RedWolfSolutions…great work!!!


And for just a little more FRIDAY afternoon entertainment (it’s Friday, so it’s over now…right?), it has now come to light that….well, just read this….

Police report: UNC’s Hairston switched drivers before checkpoint, got Yukon from ‘Fats’ Thomas (

A detailed police report into the traffic stop and arrest of UNC basketball star P.J. Hairston says that he switched places with a passenger to try to avoid a citation of driving without a license, admitted to being a “recreational” marijuana user and had been given the rental car that he was driving to go to Atlanta and see friends.

The new details raise more questions about Hairston’s standing with the basketball program, which is currently reviewing the situation. The details also counter claims by the Durham man who had rented the car, Haydn “Fats” Thomas, who had told reporters he did not give the 2013 GMC Yukon to Hairston but to another man in the car.


Hairston told police he had been driving the car, but when he saw the checkpoint he realized he could not find his drivers license. He woke up Miykael Faulcon, a friend who was in the passenger seat. Faulcon, 20, of Durham, is a basketball player for Elizabeth City State University.

“Mr. Hairston then stated that while he was stopped, he switched spots with Mr. Faulcon,” the report said. “Mr. Hairston then stated that they then drove up to the license check point.”

Hairston denied using marijuana that day, and at first told police he does not smoke marijuana. Navarre then asked when was the last time Hairston smoked marijuana, and Hairston “stated it was about two weeks ago.”

“Mr. Hairston stated that he does not smoke marijuana on a regular basis, however, he is a recreational smoker,” the report said. “Mr. Hairston stated that he does not smoke marijuana to get high, but he will take a ‘hit’ or two occasionally.”

Hairston said he had received the vehicle two hours before the traffic stop from a man he identified as “Fatts.”

“Mr. Hairston stated that ‘Fatts’ rented the vehicle for Mr. Hairston because he was planning on traveling to Atlanta this weekend to see some friends,” the report said.

Just a couple of questions here…

1) Does not smoke marijuana to get high?????  Seriously?  Is there some other reason to pay thru the nose to smoke something, of which the intended purpose as we understand it is to get “high”?

2) Switched spots while stopped, then drove to the checkpoint.  So, when exactly did the firearm get tossed?

Just saying.

Pop the popcorn and of course…stay tuned.

    Is that a tranny who shows up at the ~18 second mark? If it is, nobody on the video seems the wiser.

    If I’m not mistaken…Yes…it does happen, the Juggernaut known as the NCAA, has some new ” double indemnity ” rules that kick in sometime before the end of this year, .

    Not sure Old Mac. I wouldn’t bet against it.

    What a perfect way to start my birthday weekend 🙂 It was around this time 4 years ago that all this started at the hole. Here’s hoping for another July 14th to Celebrate!

    big shout out to the guy rocking the state hat at 2:32

  6. bTHEredterror 07/12/2013 at 6:21 PM #

    He must be using weed as an appetite stimulant. Or possibly for glaucoma?

  7. wilmwolf80 07/12/2013 at 6:21 PM #

    Takes a hit or two every now and then, but not to get high? Well I guess a lot has changed since the “didn’t inhale” defense.

  8. TheCOWDOG 07/12/2013 at 6:29 PM #

    Mac !? Nice eyeballs. Its Adams Apple is exposed at the 24 sec. mark. So much for Shorties. Damn.

    Can someone tell Ponch to put his freakin’ finger pistol away and quit pointing it at me? It’s creeping me out more than Dennis…er…Denise.

    what about the gun? No one owns it and no one knows anything about it and yet someone put it out of the car. Two others in the car are not talking.

    1. Whose fingerprints are on it???

    2.Has it been recently fired?

    3. What is the serial number if any.

    4. Who is the owner of record.

    5, Is it stolen

    6.Has it been ballistic tested to see if it was fired in a crime.

    7. Has anyone ever used the weapon in the following manner and said “I double dare you to say “what” again. Does he look like a bitch? Do you read the bible? Ezekiel 25:17 the Path of the righteous man is beset on all sides….:

    Those videos just…. confuse me so. I think I lose IQ points with every viewing…

    este viernes … party on people

    And speaking of switching seats, from the greatest hole song OF ALL TIME! (i hope the img shows)

    Edit: Oh well … I’m being interwebs illiterate. It’s supposed to be an image of Rebecca Black asking which seat can she take from the hole anthem “It’s Friday!” … you know, gonna get down on Friday. B*tch.

    ^ TD… while you are right…. there no “distance” in the gun thing…

    1. It was a “normal” traffic stop….
    2. Car in question stops short…
    3. Officer waves car in question forward..
    4. Driver and passenger exchange places…
    5. Car in question pulls up… to vicinity of officer…
    6. Everybody gets out of car….
    7. Officer finds gun on the ground…
    8. No witnesses ….

    and apparently no fingerprints…. otherwise….. there would have been charges filed…

    There’s too much elsewhere that can be substantiated to worry about that gun….

    Now… if you want to and have the time to go digging around…. figure out how Fats never served time for any of his convictions…. might start by looking into his relationship with a well known UNx grad…. the former Durham County DA….

    Love the reference td1983….one of my favorite scenes of one of my favorite flicks.

    Describe what Marcellus Wallace LOOKS LIKE…

    “What does he look like? Is he a bitch? then why are you trying to f*** him”

    Now that is some straight up gangsta sh**.

    I see people everyday glorifying this gangster lifestyle through their dress, music and attitudes. Some don’t mean it and think it is funny. Ok I get that. Some really do live that life and they scare the hell out of me. Others blur the line. Why celebrate a lifestyle that degrades those in your community with drugs and violence. I prefer people that lift up themselves and those in their family and surrounding community and try to make things better.

    I sat in the arboretum in the UNC campus next to the planetarium the other day looking at the memorial for Eve Carson. That is very sad. Those guys that took her life were the real deal gangsters. We cannot have role models promoting that kind of lifestyle even if it is just playing around.

    Checked out the premium board on The Wolfpacker earlier tonight and it seems that something very big is about to drop, very big!

    Something about PMs on TOS (someone please explain what TOS stands for). Apparently there is some new information that will come to light soon (projected by end of this weekend) that will burn UNC and its sacred cow. This information is being highly protected by those who are privileged to it, out of fear of UNC supporters catching wind and helping to alleviate the blow. It seems dots will be connected…I am trying hard to tame my optimism that this may truly be the straw that breaks the camels back.

    TOS = “the other site” meaning PackPride

    “White” Party? Looked more like an ebony party. I didn’t see any crazy ass crackers there. Not even a Mia Wallace.

    I’m the foot f***ing masta!

  18. Wufpacker 07/13/2013 at 6:53 AM #

    You brought her here, that means you’re giving her the shot. The day I bring an OD’ing bitch to your house….then I give her the shot.

    I’m gonna get medieval on yo’ ass.

    Is what a country? Do they speak English in what? Say what again! I dare you! I double dare you!

    You remember Antwan Rockamora, half black, half Simoan, used to call him Tony Rocky Horror?

  22. Wufpacker 07/13/2013 at 11:30 AM #

    I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass for 2 years.

    “Night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That’s pride f’*ckin with you. F*ck pride! Pride only hurts, it never helps. You fight through that sh*t.” <– This is what is going to get them in trouble over there. PRIDE.

    A hit or 2 only? Short pull or are you filling them lungs? Sticks and stems or nugs? What I'm saying is, depending on the quality, he could be completely leveled off his ass.

    In my " experimental" days, I smoked and giggled like a girl I recall. I also combined weird food items like Yoohoo and Funyuns. Gah lee they went so well together.
