Drinking Liquid Investiture?

Question

If a normal human on Scadrial were to drink from the Well of Ascension, would they become an Allomancer? Would a human on Sel drinking from the Pool become an Reod Elantrian, as they don't have the Dominion part of the Dor in their body? What would happen if someone drank world-specific Investiture?

Liquid-state Investiture is the most potent. Given that Brandon says that the form of the Investiture is critical, I don't think that liquid Investiture will do the same sort of things that it can do in solid or gaseous form. The Well of Ascension was specifically set up to do one specific thing (which didn't entail swallowing it) but that doesn't mean that other Perpendicularities would do similar things. Given how potent it is, I wouldn't be surprised if trying to drink the liquid did Really Bad Things to you.

Following that WoB, drinking out of the Well won't make you a mistborn. There's another that Devotion's Perpendicularity works differently from Preservation's so there's no reason to think drinking from it would make you Elantrian (by the way, the Dor is the same everywhere and is a mix of Devotion and Dominion, so there's nowhere that doesn't have at least some of both) and since humans can't gain Aviar talents there's definitely no point in trying to drink from Patji's Eye.
