And you can get third degree burns from 160 or 170 also, if you pour the cup on your lap
Right.

Aha, but the entire thing is disingenuous. He tries to make it seem absurd that anyone would serve coffe close to boiling temp. Often, when you make coffe you use boiling water.
You can argue the merits of the case itself, but the point is that it's held up as such a prominent example of a frivolous suit and of an overly litigious society. A lot of that had to do with misinformation - that she was driving, or that she had only minor injuries, etc. To me that was the crux of the Adam Ruins piece.

This is made much worse if you are wearing any clothing that will absorb the hot liquid and insulate it for more than a few seconds.

I've never tried, but is 190 degree liquid even drinkable without getting burned?

Here's an academic paper studying the optimal temperature for serving coffee and tea.  Says between 160 and 185 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18226454

So McDonalds was super negligent because theirs was 190.

Soon meshugener will finally be accepted for the puppy that he is.

It does help if the APA picks up on it. I mean there are real situations where people can start speaking a different language or something called psychogenic fugue (now called Dissociative fugue) where a person forgets there own identity (but does not assume another one though). It happened with Margo Kidder the actress most famously.
