That God forsaken hill in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada. Not to be walked up unless you are an Olympic Athlete, a Himalayan Sherpa, or Guntash. The very reason nobody who lives in the town has a soul.

Guy: Mordor!!!

Dude: Good point, lets just get drunk/ stoned.

1) a place that it's very hard to get to
2) a mysterious place of power, where the dark elite resides
3) a place that might or might not be real, depending on the definition

"One does not simply <activity> oneself into Mordor." discredits <activity> by stating that it does not live up to one's own impossibly inflated (and potentially misguided) standards.
<CHINA> Im warezing it ;<
<Alakala> One does not simply warez himself into Mordor.
<CHINA> One does not simply use an overused meme to answer me into mordor

In J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional universe of Middle-earth, Mordor is the dwelling place of Sauron, in the southeast of Middle-earth to the East of Anduin, the great river. Frodo and Sam went there to destroy the One Ring. Mordor was unique because of the three enormous mountain ridges surrounding it, from the North, from the West and from the South, that protected this land from an unexpected invasion by any of the people living in those directions.

Mordor was a relic of the devastating works of Morgoth, apparently formed by massive volcanic eruptions. It was given the name Mordor already before Sauron settled there, because of its volcano Orodruin and its eruptions.

Mordor actually has two meanings: "The Black Land" in Tolkien's contrived language Sindarin, and "The Land of Shadow" in Quenya. The root mor ("dark", "black") also appears in Moria. Dor ("land") also appears in Gondor ("stone-land") and Doriath ("fenced land"). The Quenya word for Shadow is "mordo".

A proposed etymology out of the context of Middle-earth is Old English morthor, which means "mortal sin" or "murder". (The latter are descended from the former.) It is not uncommon for names in Tolkien's fiction to have relevant meanings in several languages, both those invented by Tolkien, and "real" ones, but this of course happens with any two languages. Mordor is also a name cited in some Nordic mythologies referring to a land where its citizens practise evil without knowing it, imposed on themselves by the society long created for that purpose. This quite fits with Tolkien's Mordor.
Sauron settled in Mordor shortly after the end of the First Age

1. A barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash, and dust, where the very air you breathe, is a poisonous fume.
Do you know way to Mordor? You've been there before..

The dwelling place of Rush Limbaugh.
Frodo: Tell us about Mordor. What is it like?

Aragorn: Mordor is a terrible place, occupied by evil fat men who use religion as an excuse for bigotry.

Sam: Don't think I want to go there.
