...yet again, may have been mentioned but i think they brought up the pot was because they remembered from the tape when casey says "...yeah, his roommates smoke weed!" i guess they forgot. i think they just want to make everyone look bad and questionable. and the easel? well, cause baez couldnt spell magnesium. no spell check on easel.

IDK if it will come in,but TL and his friends already admitted to smoking pot. The trash came from TL's apt. I think ICA found a used paper towel in the bag and tried to wipe out her car with it.

I really don't understand why she doesn't gag during testimony.

Of course!

And she did this in the trunk of her car because the ganja made her all paranoid like.

It is showmanship. He thinks if he forces someone to write something that they don't want to, it helps him make his point. That they reach the same conclusion as him. It distracts them from the real questions as well. So they may make a mistake in their answers.

It would have been far more effective if Dr. Vass had been the one to at the direction of Mr. Baez

show 30 elements known in decomp /3 found. It didn't have that same effect with Dr. Vass having time to think about where JB was going.

Yes. Like wiping out the inside of a tobacco pipe with a paper towel. I see what you're getting at though, and now need to go look back at the paper towels in the evidence photo to see if there are blackish smudges thereupon!

JB spent a couple hundred thousand dollars prior to the trial IIRC. He is just showing all of us where some of the money went.

Typically, bong water goes down the sink/toilet, but even with a bong there is a bowl that holds the substance, and said bowl gets tarry/clogged. Paper towel used to wipe this residue off makes most sense as the source of the THC found on the paper towels found in the trash found trunk. If that makes sense?
That opinion is a hell of a lot more comforting than my thought of Caylee being exposed to second hand smoke. In levels enough to be in the adipose.

I'm thinking more along the lines of the smell of bong water. From personal experience (shhhh! ) bong water smells TERRIBLE! The resin from marijuana mixed with water makes one of the most putrid smells ever. It is considered a major "party foul" to spill a bong because the smell is so vile and so difficult to remove. If it is spilled on carpet, forget it, it's gonna smell for weeks.

However, I don't think it smells like decomposition at all (at least not animal, I've never smelled human). So I don't exactly see the correlation here.

It is if you're trying to explain why your client might eat lbs of raw hamburger meat with a bag over her head.

Don't you think it's also to mess with their heads...having witnesses jump through hoops for him? I think it's very demeaning...and IMO it's designed for that very purpose.

Probably nothing, I guess I just thought everyone had one, LOL. Seriously, yes, I guess do as people have them for less. He certainly has had himself out there enough and all.

I had first thought she did that to keep the fluids from exiting the body (into to the car maybe)until I learned Friday or Saturday here that the hair that was on the duct did not have the death band, meaning ICA put that duct tape on Caylee while she was still alive.

After that I have decided she is just poor plain evil. And that is the nicest thing I can say.

I've been thinking about this since QueenD's post.
Maybe it was only her mouth covered, as small as she is, maybe the couple of layers were to just strengthen the tape to keep it firmer on her mouth, yet she struggled when she awoke, trying to move her mouth to the point that the tape covered her nose, and as she was giving out of what breath she had, she could no longer fight the tape away.

1. "Burpees".... yep. They make ya burp. Well named.

2. Still not sure on bong water residue v. pipe/bowl scrapings to produce the chemical signature on the paper towels. Either way, not in Caylee's tissues IMO. (And only IMO.)

3. Re: JB using pen and pad vs the technology in the courtroom--again IMO this is ONLY because he does not know how to use the technology and did not avail himself of opportunities to learn (CJBP gave both teams the opportunity to go into the courtroom and get used to the equipment). What he is doing with pen, paper, and easel, is exactly what the SA is doing using only the computer screens. This was made abundantly clear when JB approached GA or YM (?) with a blown-up photo of a gas can on a posterboard that was the exact same photo the SA had earlier used on the screens alone.

Only wished we would have counted JB's objections that were over-ruled by the judge. Easy 15+ . The judge had numerous sidebars and it appeared the Judge explained to JB what questions he could ask and JB went back and asked the same question he was directed NOT to ask.

At one point he objected to his own question. Honestly it was hard to listen to JB on cross.

Can't imagine how the PT felt today and as for Dr. Vass he probably never wants to see JB again JB was such a bully.

From my understanding, not all corpse hairs have this deathband, though. It is only seen in the hair of corpses, but not always seen in the hair of corpses. At least, that's what I gathered from the testimony.

Dr. Vass is one wonderful, unsullied man who not only loves what he does ( almost childlike when recounting his works )..but would never ever compromise it for profit..JMO

Dr. Vass, on behalf of Caylee and all those who wish for justice here..TY TY TY!!..You Rock!!
ITA completely!
Although at times Dr Vaas showed some frustration, for the most part he kept his cool which I was amazed at considering the <modsnip> accusations Baez was throwing his way ....
I loved the way he would answer Jose AGAIN and try to explain his answer in more detail the second time around ... it was subtle, but the sarcasm was there and Dr Vaas seemed determined to get his point across ...

IMO Dr Vaas came across as geniune and extremely knowledgeable ... he took time to enthusiastically explain (did I mention I <3 Dr Vaas?) the facts of his testing and research to the jury in a way they would understand without talking down to them .... awesome job !!
I was very surprised to hear that he didn't have experience testifying in trials ... he did it so well

IMO Jose came across as a <modsnip> for the way he treated Dr Vaas on the stand ... wrong approach, Jose ... I think it really turned the jury off .... JMO
