look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
A city near the Mississippi River that is hands-down the worst place on earth.

Everyone here is either:
A)old, sick, or both
B)FSD
C)drunk or on drugs
or
D)dying to get out

Quincy is horrible. If you don't make it out by 25, you're stuck here forever. It is a cultural abyss. Trends make it here about 3 years after they've been popular everywhere else. Everyone mispronounces everything. Everyone goes deerhunting. The men have no limits to their stupidity and the girls are either super Christians or total whores.

Don't ever come here.
Please.
Quincy, Illinois is a great place to be from, but a horrible place to live.

A place where dreams can be restored. When you don't like the way it is change it. Give your best.

Many people here are hurting. The drugs and negative lifestyles are a cry for help. Burdens weigh heavy. Men are thought to treat women like crap because of the example they have in their lives. Women accept harm and destruction in their lives because they see their mothers accept it. Quincy isn't a horrible place to live we just need change and God to change our hearts on how we view Quincy. We can make a choice, either sit and watch it fall apart or get out and make a change.

God is only limited by your faith and belief. He can make the change.

The place where dreams come to die.
A cultural wasteland with no redeeming qualities.
The 'city' is pretty much ruled by crotchety old people who are easily annoyed. People are devoid of any form of entertainment besides movies, church, and eating themselves to death at the many resturaunts and bars, (They out number ALL other businesses). We have a college that requires religious courses to attend and a community college that just plain sucks....

The WEATHER makes front page news, for christ sake!

Nothing ever happens here.
Except birth, meth, teenage pregnancy, and death.
There are more dead people here than living.
Total living: 40, 100 Buried: 42,000 IN ONE cemetery!
We have at LEAST five.

Agree with definition #1. Worst place to live. Best place to die.
I REALLY hate myself;so I'll commit suicide. Drugs are too pricey, guns are too quick, and slitting my wrists too messy. I know! I'll just move to Quincy, Illinois!

Come on vacation
Leave on Probation
Officer I was just visiting family in Quincy. Is the beating and prison really called for because of a failure to signal?
Have you seen those b-movies where the hot girls go through the small town and get arrested for trumped up charges and forced to do hot late night kinds of things. That's Quincy, Illinois only to everyone hot or not and no cool sex to speak of unless your consider the reaming you get at court.

Yes could I get the Johnny law special with no lube please.
