It's not like it was used to cool down a nuclear engine on a submarine or anything. It's just plain ass water.

Put this in your sig if you're Atheist and proud of it. It can be your sig if you're Catholic, too.

Yes and no, depends on the source it came from.

I wouldn't drink it, but it should be safe not kill you days later.

Distilled water can cause heart and other problems to dogs if given daily.

Dogs need the minerals from tap water to stay healthy an strong

Edit: plz don't give your dogs distilled water as a sub for drinking water, unless your going to give them vitamins.

No, you better don't. If it is just distilled water, you are fine. However, many coolant are mixed with other chemicals to make them more effective, such as ethylene/propylene glycol. Those things will **** you up. Not to mention whatever coloring they put in.
