Good God - is that actually English? They do speak English in Melbourne, not this gibberish (I was going to make a comment about aboriginal gibberish, but I realized I'd be insulting the Aboriginals). Sheesh....

Ur is an ancient city in what is now Iraq:

ur

light, or the moon city, a city "of the Chaldees," the birthplace of Haran (Gen.
11:28,31), the largest city of Shinar or northern Chaldea, and the principal
commercial centre of the country as well as the centre of political power. It
stood near the mouth of the Euphrates, on its western bank, and is represented
by the mounds (of bricks cemented by bitumen) of el-Mugheir, i.e., "the
bitumined," or "the town of bitumen," now 150 miles from the sea and some 6
miles from the Euphrates, a little above the point where it receives the Shat
el-Hie, an affluent from the Tigris. It was formerly a maritime city, as the
waters of the Persian Gulf reached thus far inland. Ur was the port of
Babylonia, whence trade was carried on with the dwellers on the gulf, and with
the distant countries of India, Ethiopia, and Egypt. It was abandoned about
B.C. 500, but long continued, like Erech, to be a great sacred cemetery city,
as is evident from the number of tombs found there. (See ABRAHAM.) The oldest
king of Ur known to us is Ur-Ba'u (servant of the goddess Ba'u), as Hommel reads
the name, or Ur-Gur, as others read it. He lived some twenty-eight hundred years
B.C., and took part in building the famous temple of the moon-god Sin in Ur
itself. The illustration here given represents his cuneiform inscription,
written in the Sumerian language, and stamped upon every brick of the temple in
Ur. It reads: "Ur-Ba'u, king of Ur, who built the temple of the moon-god." "Ur
was consecrated to the worship of Sin, the Babylonian moon-god. It shared this
honour, however, with another city, and this city was Haran, or Harran. Harran
was in Mesopotamia, and took its name from the highroad which led through it
from the east to the west. The name is Babylonian, and bears witness to its
having been founded by a Babylonian king. The same witness is still more
decisively borne by the worship paid in it to the Babylonian moon-god and by
its ancient temple of Sin. Indeed, the temple of the moon-god at Harran was
perhaps even more famous in the Assyrian and Babylonian world than the temple
of the moon-god at Ur. "Between Ur and Harran there must, consequently, have
been a close connection in early times, the record of which has not yet been
recovered. It may be that Harran owed its foundation to a king of Ur; at any
rate the two cities were bound together by the worship of the same deity, the
closest and most enduring bond of union that existed in the ancient world. That
Terah should have migrated from Ur to Harran, therefore, ceases to be
extraordinary. If he left Ur at all, it was the most natural place to which to
go. It was like passing from one court of a temple into another. "Such a
remarkable coincidence between the Biblical narrative and the evidence of
archaeological research cannot be the result of chance. The narrative must be
historical; no writer of late date, even if he were a Babylonian, could have
invented a story so exactly in accordance with what we now know to have been
the truth. For a story of the kind to have been the invention of Palestinian
tradition is equally impossible. To the unprejudiced mind there is no escape
from the conclusion that the history of the migration of Terah from Ur to
Harran is founded on fact" (Sayce).

As for the rest... I hope I never see a job application written like this. Though, if I do, it'll probably be in crayon and give me a good laugh.

(Sorry Raiyn - had to jump in there, but feel free to add to the drubbing)

I got it! I figured it out! He wants to set up a group ride in Ur but we all have to make sure that we don't go wreckin' so we have to have Maxxis tires and have to have our hair high in rollers....

And then after that we will all go to Moro. But wait..where is Moro?

Wow just wow. Did you actually ever pass an English course?
"U" is a letter not a word
"B" is also a letter and not a word
"2" is a number again not a word
"Ur" is an ancient city of Sumer located on a former channel of the Euphrates River and (you guessed it) not a word in the English language
"2 moro" is plain ignorant gibberish in written form
"rekon" is misspelled but that's easy to do
Either follow the rules about avoiding AOL'ese and doing your best when it comes to spelling or grammar or don't post at all.
