"The green-eyed monster that lives in your brain."

Yesterday I asked whether the New York Times headline concerning the recent neuroimaging study of envy was silly.

But the coverage in the UK's Daily Mail is even sillier. They report that scientists have found the brain's "jealousy lobe," and announce that the "area of the brain which controls jealousy has been found." Yeah, sure. And every crowing rooster "controls" the rising sun.
