russian prisons

just so everyone knows this dark kermit meme isn’t actually dark kermit. the frog in the hood is kermit’s evil look-a-like constantine who escaped from a russian prison and had kermit arrested in his place. just saying… just letting you know… the voice in your head telling you to do bad things is actually an escaped russian convict

Happy Speculation: Olicity Vs. Dyla

Remember when David Ramsey said in the comicbook interview in reference to John and Lylas relationship that ”The couple has evolved. They’re Felicity and Oliver in five years.“

Do you also recall his comment to Oliver in 4.06 about marrying a woman like Felicity twice? No, it wasn’t a marriage, but Olicity’s first trial at happy after 3x23 was almost like a marriage, so I am counting is as trial one!

Now.. How did Dig get back together with Lyla?

They got back together after John saved her from a Russian prison that she had gone under cover in to help him with his mission to find Deadshot.  They had not talked for a long time.

So if @nalla-madness speculation of   “Who is going to save Felicity?” in which she specs that Felicity’s dark arc will end her in prison and that Oliver Queen will save her comes true; then it would be an exact parallel to John and Lyla and we might just might get this:

After all Felicity will be going to prison for something to do with his mission to catch Prometheus.

Here is hoping!!

Tagging the happy bubble!

Vladimir Nikolayev is housed in one of Russia’s toughest prisons, known as the Black Dolphin. He is under 24 hour surveillance and is locked in a cell with three doors for the majority of his day. When he does get let out, he paces a tiny exercise facility like a caged lion in total silence. Nikolayev is a cannibal responsible for at least two murders. Whilst drunk, he beat a man to death and dismembered his body in the bathtub. For some reason, he then decided to eat him, stating that “I just thought I’d try it.” He cut off part of his thigh and boiled it, but he didn’t like the taste so he deep fried some more meat and found it much nicer. He was so impressed with the taste that he gave some to his friend and claimed it was kangaroo meat. His friend took it home to his wife who made a meal of dumplings and fed it to the family. With his next victim, he went a step further, grinding up the human meat and selling it to the local market as mince.

BTS AU Series #4 - 2Seok/Hackers

“Important question. Did you hack that Russian mobster bank account?”
“Yes. He was rude to me. More important question. Did you drink my last Red Bull?”
“Hoseok, this is serious. You could go to jail, or get shot.”
Or I could end up falling asleep at the peak of hack time because you drank my last Red Bull. Seriously, were you raised in a zoo or something.  Replace what you take.”
“…You better hope your Russian prison cellmate is as patient as I am.”

January 14th 1953: Josip Broz Tito inaugurated

On this day in 1953, Josip Broz Tito was inaugurated as the first President of Yugoslavia. Born as Josip Broz to a poor Croatian family, he served in World War One, and was introduced to communism while in a Russian prisoner of war camp. The ideology struck a chord with the young Croat, and Broz became involved in the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. Once he returned to Croatia (now part of the new Yugoslavia), he promptly joined the newly created Communist Party of Yugoslavia, which was driven underground by a government crackdown. It was soon after his release from prison in 1934 that he began using the name Tito for underground party work. In 1939, he became the party’s Secretary-General, largely due to support for him in Moscow. During World War Two, and after the Axis occupation of Yugoslavia began in 1941, Tito became leader of the Partisan resistance movement in the country. The Partisan units took the offensive against the Axis forces, led by Nazi Germany, and aimed to establish communist communities; the movement was one of the most effective resistance efforts during the war. After the war, Tito emerged as the leader of a united, Communist, Yugoslav republic. The monarchy was abolished in 1945, thus beginning a dictatorship that would last over 25 years. Tito formally became president at a time when his government was cut off from the Soviet Union after a break with Stalin, and was increasingly aligning with the West. He eventually chose a course of non-alignment, and in this joined with the Indian, Egyptian, and Indonesian governments during the Cold War. Tito ruled Yugoslavia until his death on May 4th, 1980. Without Tito as a unifying presence, tensions soon arose among the Yugoslav nations, and the country descended into civil war in the early 1990s, which resulted in the breakup of the country.

So I recently watched a documentary about prison tattoos and learned a few things about the Ranskahov brothers 

their cross tattoo’s on their chest symbolizes “Prince of Thieves”  which is like the highest rank a Russian prisoner can get, and usually members of the mafia only have those. 

So basically these two were highly respected in the prison world, in one of the mob groups, and at one point probably were part of the head guys who ran the prison like the bad asses they are. Man these guys are vicious.
