And the most intriguing answer (as she thought the words to “Stranded In The Jungle” were a clue to the quiz–I wish I had thought of that!), came from Karen Sine, and here she is now:


Hi again Elaine. I’ve copied the text into this email. I have an Apple and saved the file in Word format, but maybe I sent the Apple version instead. I’m so envious of those who know what they’re doing.

Me too….


Here’s the case:
I’ve enjoyed your quizzes for years and am finally going to attempt one.

Uh-oh; well, hold on to the railing!

The little boy is intriguing. He is violent with his toy cars, yet is afraid of violence (fear someone would be angry with him). Very loud and very persistent, yet tries to obey his parents and is remorseful if he thinks he has done something wrong.  So, based on what really is striking and peculiar, I chose the following rubrics:

Mind; fear; alone, being; darkness, in
Mind; anxiety; conscience, of and Mind; remorse, repentance combined
Mind; gestures, makes; violent
Mind; pertinacity
Mind; roving about

Was there roving about? I didn’t notice any. He was playing. Playing may involve moving from place to place, we don’t know.

Mind; shrieking, screaming, shouting; causeless

I don’t remember any screaming or shouting.

Mind: shrieking, screaming, shouting, constant

Karen, be careful not to add rubrics to the case based on assumptions. All we know is: he’s loud, he talks non-stop, he’s violent and he’s afraid of the dark. That’s all we know.

Speech & voice; loud voice

I didn’t know Pertenacity was a rubric until now.  It means “adhering resolutely to an opinion, purpose; perversely persistent; stubbornly tenacious.”

I don’t know. What is he stubborn about? That he can’t be quiet? I’m not sure that he can help it. It’s like something affecting his brain that he has no control over.

My choice is Stramonium

Good choice!!!

for the violent action, fear of the dark, and persistent behavior (smashing cars and loud talking). Stramonium’s relatives Belladonna and Hyoscyamus also looked like possibilities, but I’d expect some inflammation (anger/fever) with Bell and some abusiveness and silly behavior for attention with Hyoscyamus.

On the other hand…there’s synchronicity!

“Meanwhile, back in the jungle…..”

“I was stranded in the jungle, afraid and alone”– Mind; delusions, imaginations; wilderness, being in a

“The boys in the jungle had me on the run”– Mind; delusions; pursued, of being; enemies, by

“When something hit me like an atomic bomb”– Mind; fear; attacked, of being

“I smelled somethin’ cookin’ and I looked to see, that’s when I found out they was a-cookin’ me!”–Mind: delusions, roasted, he will be; and, Mind: delusions, devoured, being, of

“And when I got to lovers lane I was almost dead”–Mind: delusions, die, about to

“So come back pretty baby where you used to be, ’cause I love you…” — Mind: delusions, wife, faithless and Mind: delusions, deserted, forsaken

Well, if Davie Crockett doesn’t need Stramonium, the Cadets certainly do!

OMG! The words to “Stranded In The Jungle”!!!!!!

I am hereby declaring “Stranded In The Jungle” the Stramonium theme song!!!!! Holy Mary Wilson Mother of Motown! Stramonium is the only remedy listed under Delusions: lost in the wilderness!  Karen, you are a genius!!!!!

A genius, I tells ya!

I like this–Homeopathy by Golden Oldies!

Finally I can justify my role as’s only DJ. (See? It was all for you!)

Thank you for the wonderful quizzes (and music).


Best wishes,
Karen Sine
