Voting Question: Can you help me find the youtube video I’m looking for?

The video I’m looking for was a video probably made more than 3 years ago. It was on youtube and it was about a couple somewhere in Europe who have a drug addiction. All I remember is that this girl liked dolls or something and the boyfriend had blonde or red short hair. I remember one scene where she is forced to give a blowjob for 50$ to support their drug habits. They also shoplift items to keep a living. I think the drug was either heroin or cocaine, something like that. I really hope someone out there knows the video I’m talking about. It was also 10 to 15 minutes I think long. It was a short film so to speak.

What is your opinion here Almighty Latin King & Queen Nation Gunning down people in our streets and distributing illegal drugs throughout our communities ?WASHINGTON, Feb 24, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ —- The leader of the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation (ALKQN) in Texas and one of his enforcers were found guilty this afternoon on multiple charges related to their participation in a large scale narcotics and firearms trafficking conspiracy, announced Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division Lanny A. Breuer and U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas. Specifically, the two men were found guilty for their roles in the May 4, 2008, murders of a pregnant female and another bystander.

“Gunning down people in our streets and distributing illegal drugs throughout our communities, these gangs spread violence and addiction wherever they go,” said Assistant Attorney General Breuer. “We will not allow their repugnant acts to go unpunished. Today, a jury of Texas citizens sent a message loud and clear to would-be gang members — we can and we will hold you accountable for your crimes.”

“For more than a week, this jury listened to testimony concerning the movement of a large amount of drugs and guns throughout the state of Texas by members of the Latin Kings criminal organization,” said James T. Jacks, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. “Not only did this gang pollute the streets of Texas with dangerous drugs, as a result of their heinous actions, two adults, one of whom was pregnant, were brutally murdered with an assault rifle. We are proud that we, along with the hard-working members of the agencies that contributed to this investigation, have brought civilized justice to otherwise uncivilized gang wars. This office is proud to have assisted the Department of Justice’s Gang Unit in the successful prosecution of these criminals.”

Jose Robledo Nava, aka “Chino,” 31, of Lubbock, Texas, and James Johnathan Cole, aka “Blitz,” 19, of Lamesa, Texas, were each found guilty by a federal jury in Lubbock on two counts of using a firearm to commit murder during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime, and one count of a conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine and 100 kilograms or more of marijuana. The jury also found Nava guilty on one count of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine, one count of conspiracy to engage in the business of dealing in firearms and one count of possession of stolen firearms.

Voting Question: can I find a girlfriend being shy?

i’m a 23 year old college student. I started taking zoloft to reduce my social anxiety and help me out with finding a girlfriend. I’m having bad side effects, and don’t know if it is worth having my shyness go away with medication. I only had one girlfriend on and off three years in my life. I later found out she was a prostitute on criagslist, and a drug dealer who had cocaine addiction. She took advantage of me. I never had sex with her because I was too shy.

i’m told by many girls that I’m hot, and attractive in terms of looks. I’m a wealthy small business owner. I’m also muscular and fit.I’m really shy, and appear socially akward, and have a hard time getting intimate with girls. Despite, all these good traits I have, I am not able to find a girlfriend. I feel lonely, and sometimes feel that there is no hope.

How can a shy guy like me get a girlfriend?
ps: i’m a small business owner and college student.
