Assunto:  About Deja vu and amnesia...good one for the day..
 
Mensagem:  I heard about déjà vu. Recurrent (sleep-inducing) déjà vu events impart that "been there done that" feeling or sense. Hearing or watching the same news on the newsreel day after day does have that sour, déjà vu taste. The anchor person gives you the same news about how inflation went up yesterday, how in today's Brazil violence rates become unbearably high or get out of hand, how our scheming politicians repeatedly failed to return the money they stole from the taxpayers, and last but not least how the old owl in the woods howls but never hoots.

What else in a fellow's sane mind does déjà vu mean that you and I and everybody else haven't seen?
