Last July, Ozzy Osbourne agreed to become one of a few humans to have his entire genome sequenced and studied.

“I was curious,” he wrote in his (Sunday Times) column. “Given the swimming pools of booze I’ve guzzled over the years—not to mention all of the cocaine, morphine, sleeping pills, cough syrup, LSD, Rohypnol…you name it—there’s really no plausible medical reason why I should still be alive. Maybe my DNA could say why.”

So what did the genome analysis reveal about the Prince of Darkness?

He’s descended from Neandertals.

Aren’t we all?
