I have an old little piece of cut up tube from when I installed my water cooling because if I remember correctly the length was too long. Anyway little piece of tubing is slowly changing color and is scares me. I poke at it with a pencil and then through away the pencil. What the heck is it?

Looks like it could possibly be flux or oily residue from new components. If the tubing was cut from where it connected to a fitting, the yellow area might be where the turbulence from the fitting entry caused residue to deposit on the tubing walls.

That's my initial guess, but might be others.

I could taste it. Although I don't think that would be very affective. And I would need a reference of what the different causes would taste like. And a doctor.
