Clearly, they are onto her, or at least some of them are. Only the attorneys and the judge know if all of the questions were written by only a few of the jurors, or if all of the jurors wrote questions in the same vein.
At any rate, it's interesting that, in a sense, the jury deliberations are given a head start before the trial ends, in Arizona. Since the jurors aren't permitted to discuss the case with each other until the trial has ended, the questions submitted gave all of the jurors a preview of what others are thinking regarding the credibility of the witness (Arias). In other states, they might not have an inkling about the direction other jurors will take in deciding guilt versus innocence of a defendant, until the initial blind vote.
The breezy manner in which Arias responded made her appear as if she was fielding questions, as an expert, on a talk show, and not a victim. Never mind that she talked herself silly, in circles, with the content of answers, sometimes contradicting prior statements. I wonder if she wishes she had never taken the stand, or if she is still believes she is doing a bang-up job and that no jury will ever convict her.

Juror question: "Did Juan cause you to shake during questioning? If so, provide an est. of how many times this happened"
If her brain gets jumbled, and she goes into a fog because she is stressed, when people like Alexander or Martinez yell at her as she quipped to Martinez during cross, how does she remember precisely how many times she was shaking like a Chihuahua during the trial, if her brain was jumbled by his yelling? She just disproved her own jumbled brain/memory loss defense for not answering questions.

Is Nurmi attempting to generate empathy from jurors by driving them toward insane murderous rage via tortuous tedious testimony so that they can relate to Arias's murderous rage with Alexander's killing? I don't know how they can hold it together. I would be losing my mind at this point as a juror and I would know to NEVER EVER place another question in the basket for Arias; it's pure punishment.

Why did those jurors prolong this agony?
Are they masochists themselves?
Hoping to get some "tips"?

LMAO too. I know, I hear you. Supposedly, there are more questions. Gluttons for punishment, I guess. But the longer Nurmi drags out the testimony, I think the more he will elicit resentment toward him, and by association, his client.
