    One man's accidental discovery of a real life version of the movie 'Limitless' with a common over the counter cough syrup.

    Hello, I'm Ben Lynn. I've just published a mini-book on the Amazon Kindle store called 'Syrup'. It's my story recounting the past two years I've spent experimenting with a phenomena I accidentally stumbled upon with a common over the counter cough syrup. The experience I can only describe as being a real life version of the movie 'Limitless' with Bradley Cooper. In the movie, the protagonist is introduced to a pill that blows away any barriers in his consciousness and allows him to tap into the endlessly creative resources hidden deep in his psyche. An example of how this interaction with a common cough syrup unleashed unknown abilities in my own self is the writing if this mini-book itself. To someone who writes frequently or for a living, a 9 page 3800 word account of ones daily life is a very simple accomplishment to be sure. For a person like myself who has the attention span of a meth addicted ferret who struggles to put together a two line email this a feat. Once I decided to write down my experiences it took one solid 5 hour stretch of writing with a few edits and re-reads to complete and publish on Kindle store. Unheard of in my regular state as anyone close to me would tell you the same. If this sounds at all interesting, check it out on Kindle store. Syrup by Ben Lynn.
