OZZY OSBOURNE'S GOT NEADERTHAL DNA? : ARE WE SURPRISED? (OZZY HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR!)

OK, I read Ozzy's book a few months ago, ust because, and he was very very funny!  Even though I never watched the Osbourne family's reality TV show and am not a fan of Heavy Metal music or people who behead bats on stage with their own mouths, so, so I still found his book truly funny.  In it he wondered why he was still alive.  Guess some scientists were wondering too!

Here's the article from Scientific American  Ozzy Osbourne's Genome Reveals Some Neandertal Lineage By Katherine Harmon

EXCERPT: "For a long time we thought that Neandertals didn't have any descendents today, but it turns out that Asians and Europeans have some evidence of Neandertal lineage—like a drop in the bucket. We found a little segment on Ozzy's chromosome 10 that very likely traces back to a Neandertal forebearer.


Ozzy, of course, was tickled to hear this."
