Google has some good news! Earlier this week, Ukranian media noticed a slight glitch wherein Google Translate was giving “Mordor” as a translation for “Russian Federation.” The good news is that they’ve fixed the problem.
Because Middle-Earth can be a confusing, perilous place, Reddit user mbingcrosby created this Google Maps-style guide to the journey from Hobbiton to Mordor. As you can see, it's expected to take six months ("four months without Orcs"), and be ready, because "this route has trolls."
The everyday life of orcs in Mordor is tough. Any given day they end up with a knife slicing their stomach, an arrow piercing their jugular, or their head severed by who knows what. This short film tells the story of an Orc in one of those complicated days.
This is the Tolbachik volcano, laying down roads of magma over the Peninsula of Kamchatka for condemned Russians to drive on their way to hell in cars equipped with dashcams. At least, that's what it looks like in Lusika33's photographs. It's truly pretty—in a Mordor kind of way.
