What animal body does the Spinx represent?

The Great Sphinx of Giza [The Sphinx], represents the body of a cat-like warrior, they were called "Tphun-dor Khaqtz" by the ancient Egyptians, translating in English to "THUNDER-CATS". The Sphinx is believed to be their leader, "Lion O", who saved the Egyptians from Nazi Zombies that sought out vengeance for the Egyptians calling them "Big stinky poo-poo heads". About 400 years after the statue was built, somebody blew a big hot fart on it, and the nose blew off. It is ancient folk-lore that Der Fuhrer himself was indeed the hot-fart blower.

What county has the lowest millage rate? has county by county millage charts for various year...The latest out there as of July 21,2009 is a 2008 chart - but you can probably get a good idea from there. When you get to the link, click on the PDF link for the year desired. Once in the PDF, type the word "millage" (no quotes) in the "find" box, use the down arrow to select "Find in current PDF". Assuming you are looking at the 2008 PDF you will see "2008 Millage Rates by County - Part 1" and "2008 Millage Rates by County - Part 2". You can print individual pages from the PDF.

Where did the Samaritans originate?

A simple web search or glance through an encyclopedia will tell that Samaritans came from the ancient city Samaria, located in an area which was called Canaan until Christians and Muslims began calling it...Palestine.So I guess the simplest to your question would be: Samaritans were from Palestine.FYI -King Omri built Samaria in about 800 B.C. and made it the capital of the kingdom of Israel.In 331 B.C., the city fell to Alexander the Great.Saint John the Baptist is allegedly buried in Samaria.-- The term "Palestine" is far older than Christians and Muslims - it was the Roman name for the province, ruled by Herod, containing what is now Israel (and much more). BTW, Zionist publications before WWII and the creation of the state of Israel refered to the Jews living there as "Palestinians"!The word Palestine comes from L. Palestina (name of a Roman province), from Gk. Palaistine (Herodotus), from Heb. Pelesheth "Philistia, land of the Philistines."
