Even Ozzy doesn't know why he's still with us

Ozzy Osbourne is a walking example of the perils of doing drugs.

The remarkable thing is, he's still walking, even if it's more correct to call it shuffling, and talking, even if the noises he makes sound more like mumbles than anything.

I mean -- seriously -- how can this guy still be alive?

Even Ozzy doesn't know. But, the Chicago Tribune reports today, Ozzy is trying to find out. According to the linked story, Ozzy has gone to a Cambridge, Massachusetts company, Knome, and a St. Louis-based company, Cofactor Genomics to map his DNA and find out whether he possesses some genetic characteristic that makes him survive doing things that would kill anyone else.

Maybe the tests will even explain why he likes to bite bats.

I met him a few months ago, he was here for a book signing. He was actually easy to understand, though I really have no idea how he's still around. Must be strictly due to Sharon.
