What makes Chinese food so popular as take-out?

No matter how you define "Chinese food" -- but in this case we're probably talking about Americanized Chinese food -- it seems like along with perhaps pizza, Chinese food is the king of take-out.

Why is that?

Just searching Chowhound one can find numerous threads about Chinese take-out, but rarely one about (for example) Indian, Japanese, Mexican, etc.

Examples of Chinese take-out threads:
