Déjà vu is the really odd feeling you get when you see something happen the exact same way twice, or when you have done the exact same action before, and are doing it again. Usually the basis is completely improbable, like the other side of your mind is insisting that you could not have possibly seen the thing before.

Déjà vu is also a very kickass J-Pop song by Dave Rodgers.
When I held the sniper rifle in my hand for the first time, it felt like I'd been practicing with it forever. Such déjà vu.

Something that very few people know the true meaning of. Even though deja vu is French for "already seen", it actually is used to describe the strange feeling you get when you're in a situation, and feel like you've been in the exact same situation before, but really haven't. Most people think it means the same thing happening twice, which is wrong. Get it right people!

Bob: Heh. Deja vu?
Jack. Yeah. What a strange feeling!

when one senses a feeling of reoccurance. when there is a feeling that you have already seen the whole scenario or scene that is surrounding you. sometimes these deja vu's occur in dreams. one may dream of something that at the time makes no sense but days, weeks, or months later, it happens and it all of a sudden hits you.

When you go through a moment in life and you feel like you've done it before. Maybe had a dream of it, or actually lived through it before when you haven't.

deja vu is the strange feeling you get you when something happens that you feel like has happened before, but hasn't ever took place.
As New York Yankee great Yogi Berra would say, " It's deja vu all over again! "
