Have you ever experienced deja vu?

I have sometimes. Sometimes I dream about things and then when they happen which is usually months or years after the dream I feel like I've been there before. One time that really sticks out was when I had a dream I was in the bookstore at my school. I was getting reading to start school in the dream. At the time when I had that dream I wasn't thinking about going going to that school and I had never been in the bookstore or visited the school or seen pictures of it. A year later I started going to that school and part of the orientation tour was to go to bookstore. When I went inside I was in shock because the bookstore was exactly like I had dreamed about it a year before I have been to the school.

Yes, i've experienced it many times. Did you know there were several different types? Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9j%C3%A0_vu

This happens to me so often I don't even think about it any more. I did read somewhere that it has something to do with our brain and although we feel like we've seen something or been somewhere before it's usually not true.

Yeah many times. It feels so strange when it happens. I try to predict that some thing is gonna happen and many times the vision seems to be true...

Oh yeah...all the time! And it's so weird when it happens! But it's also a really cool feeling!
