    Not me. I love the jury questions. Again, don't think they were stupid (your posted word) at all. No question is "stupid" to me, but that's me.

    I wish all of our 50 states jurors could ask questions.

    Her mistake was thinking that water would destroy the microchip inside the flash card. A lot of people could make the same mistake, even computer nerds. There are videos on youtube where computer nerds will submerge a motherboard in water, set it out to dry and then boot it up to show that it still works. The comments often express amazement that such a thing is possible.

    I think the defense could not wait to get rid of her. She testified, Jodi said the knife was on the nightstand. Jodi said she shot Travis in the coset. Afterwards she said she misspoke. REALLY?

    It's a he. I'm sure of it. From what I've seen and read over the years, men are more dismissive of circumstantial evidence.

    Thanks for bringing some humor :)

    Side note: Could post separately, but having been diagnosed with PTSD (not on disability or anything for that), the defense presentation/portrayal is insulting and a sham...the jurors will know this...

    Maybe the jury will figure out Jodi's game, they had to figure out she was in jail while she gave interviews to '48 Hours' and 'Inside Edition'. Look how she acted and still, not one ounce of remorse for the man she loved, loved, loved ...she said, "she would jump off a cliff too if she did what Travis did". Not how a battered woman thinks either. Jodi didn't study Battered Women Syndrome very well.
    It is just like when Flores said she didn't act right from day one, she kept asking him to tell her what she doing wrong.
    I like to know how Jodi acts when the Alexander family struggles--some days are worse for them, does she mirror them or does she get off on their pain? To someone like Jodi, it is all a game and winning is everything. The end justifies the means, including killing someone.

    It's funny how differently we see those questions.
    I'm pretty sure there is at least one scientist or academic on that jury -
    somebody very used to asking challenging questions and well versed in critical thought.

    I think Jodi's ego led her to believe she was capable of carrying out the perfect crime. I believe she pre-med planned and expected it all to be done quickly and without incident in the shower, thus limiting the mess. Jodi would have thought she had him- once he was naked and vulnerable in the shower as per her huge, narcissistic ego and belief she would be able to manipulate him into submisson at the bottom of the shower , in a sitting position. It failed, as far as Travis not fighting , bc he fought for his life. i believe her LE interview when she said Travis said "Go, get help"I think right up to the end Travis tried to believe in Jodi being "human" but she has no empathy or compassion and imo,she went into secondary psycho mode. In the process, she cleaned up her mistakes, realized her DNA was ALL OVER the camera and if she left the house with the camera, she risked being stopped andhaving it seized and tested,therefore, she put it through the wash and then left because time became an issue with the roomates due home...

    WAIT! You are prob asking why didin't she feel that way about the knife , rope? Because the rope didn't exist until she needed to place a knife in the bathroom as per LE timeline and

    Be skeptical. SD cards are quite different from motherboards. http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/proof/

    Jodi's biggest defenders seem to be men. Same was true with Amanda Knox, but at least she was innocent.

    The snarky tiger/bear question sounds like something a man would write -- a man who thinks he's smarter than he really is.

    Many people have destroyed their cell phones by dropping them in the toilet so it seems to me that a lot of people would believe that running a digital camera thru a w/m would completely destroy it.

    It's true...

    The questions don't bother me one bit.

    Never knew any of that and I have quite a few SD cards. Never knew that motherboards could survive being submerged in water until I saw it with my own eyes.

    Perhaps, but I tend to think she invented the rope story to explain how she had such convenient access to a knife. No more, no less. And what gave her the idea were the rope-like fragments from the tassels on the pillows by his bed that are in evidence. Even there she couldn't keep her story straight. He left it in the bathroom; he left it on the nightstand; she doesn't remember where it was. :cow:

    If he'd used a rope before, he'd already have it cut to the appropriate length and handy, inside a bedroom drawer. JA wouldn't have had to bring it/buy it. I call B.S.

    You may be right!!!
    Remember in her "ninja" story she was
    being VERY careful to NOT get the camera wet!

    So she threw it in the washer...:drumroll:

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195462&page=55 Scroll down to Part 5 of Day 50 for the entire Q&A

    Hats off to Soft-Tail - I finally got to watch the entire jury questions and answers. Since NG is Ms. "Maximus Interruptus".....

    The abandonment question really raised JA's eyebrows at about 5:49 but something else I remember hearing is how the interviewer may have had her or his own personal experience that might make them biased. I've posted this before but I do think that ALV considers herself as such (abused). JMO
