1. A PLACE, in Central/Western Illinois where Chicago rejects come to hang out and spread their diseases like AIDS, Herpes, etc. to Rednecks and low life's.

2. Nothing good has come out of Galesburg (Abraham Lincoln was here once but that is not good because he abolished slavery) except for Carl Sandburg: a semi-famous poet who wrote about things (for more info go to a real website other than wiki).

3. 1 in 4 females in their teens factually has an STD in the Galesburg area.

4. We have a 45% drop out rate.

5. Lake Story is pretty neat.

6. Bunker Links Golf Course is pretty cool.

7. Taco Bell is pretty neat.

8. We have a railroad (yay).

9. Did I mention over 50% of the population: doesn't have a job, pulls a well fair check, has 8 bastard children, unmarried, selfish, ignorant, and last but most importanly will never amount to anything other than a name on God's judgement tablet that we will all face one day.

Me: "Cheers man! Oh and btw, your adopted too."
