I believe ethylene glycol is used in anti-freeze and used to infact have that sweet taste but now they add things to it to make it better....why, because yes in the past people have added it into drinks causing death...there was on instance of a lady charged with killing her brother in law because she made him a mixed alcoholic drink with that in it...of course he didn't notice anything because it tastes sweet and it wound up killing him.

This is also where the rumor of adding anti-freeze into wine came into play which I believe years ago was actually somewhat common for people do trying to make a wine seem better.

Is Anit-Freeze electrically conductive? Lol if it isn't, I may try soaking a computer in that instead of oil.

I wonder what'll happen when the vegetable oil goes bad.

Exposure to light, oxygen, and heat cause it to go bad. Being inside a translucent tub with a computer, poorly sealed, it's being exposed to all three...

Vegetable oil goes from a 1 year shelf life unopened to a few months opened, to probably a month or two or in an environment like that.
