What is New York style Chinese food?

today’s round is real easy if you’ve ever lived in/near New York City, expect maybe the last clue. I didn’t find that out until I was already a grown-up.
"I’ve been examining my values lately, and determining whether or not I like the feelings that result from those values."
"What’s an example of one of your values?"
"I’m very competitive."
"And what’s a feeling that results from being competitive?”
"How does competitiveness result in jealousy?"
"When you have a competitive mindset, you tend to view the world in terms of winners and losers. So you resent other people getting recognition, because you somehow believe that less recognition is available to you. I’m learning that this is a false mindset. There’s not a fixed amount of success and recognition in the world. So another person’s accomplishments don’t diminish the accomplishments available to you."
This entry moved me because I’ve been seeing a lot of my friends lately succeed in ways that made me jealous of their accomplishments. Of course I am happy to see good, smart people get new jobs and launch new projects, but all the while I languish in a job I hate. It was starting to get to me.
But he’s right. My friends’ success doesn’t turn me into a loser. If anything, having successful friends means I am more likely to succeed when I finally escape from my toil and attempt a new venture.
These are good times, no matter what my stupid brain thinks.Source: humansofnewyork
Attention BRANDS: September 11th is not an opportunity to market your business.
If you run a business, it’s tempting to use “current events and trends” to market your company. Everyone is talking about the power going out at the Super Bowl? Hardy-har-har nice one, Oreo! Miley Cyrus twerking is…

Scenes from the New York subway system circa 1980
80s you crazy ass funks
I remember being terrified of and fascinated by the subway in NYC in the 80s. When I went back there in the 90s, I was astounded by how much the system had cleaned up.
I think I just found photographic evidence of why my parents, lifelong City dwellers, moved to the suburbs to raise me and my sister. Because by the time I started regularly visiting New York and riding the subway by myself, all of this was gone.Source: jimmy-page-is-my-love
"You think that your children are going to grow up to be a lot like you, but then they develop into a completely different person. Yesterday my seven year old son told me that reggae was boring. That hurt a little."
I know just how this woman feels. Lately my son has shown an aversion to pizza and it’s KILLING ME.
I always wince at parents who worry about their kids turning out to be gay or trans or whatever. My biggest fear is that one of my kids will become a Red Sox fan.Source: humansofnewyork
