So, I was just reading the Wiki Page for Greg Luzinski... I'd been looking up the Phillies from my era. Lethal Weapon was on in the background and I had a sudden felling of Deja Vu.

The picture of Luzinski looked very familiar and the playback of Lethal Weapon sounded like I'd heard it before.

But then I realized, I hadn't had a feeling of Deja Vu for a very very long time.

Does anyone have any insight as for whether Deja Vu increased or decreases - or stays the same as you get older?

I think it decreases with age because it mostly occurs in people 15-25. Brain fart.

Either that or we don't feel deja vu because we actually WERE all those places or in those situations before! We're old!

I'm 65 and still get an occasional deja vu. Have all my life. Had one a couple of months ago.

I was messing around in YouTube a week or so ago. A home decorating video popped up and I heard very familiar voices, before I understood visually what I was watching. It was Matt and Shari who used to do Room by Room for HGTV.

That was actually close to deja vu experience for me. I remembered watching them in the early aughts on the mornings when I did treadmill at home. It all came back-- and then quickly faded. Just hearing Shari's voice which sounded utterly familiar, brought back that memory of me in that room in my old house, walking on a treadmill.

Before that, I can't remember having a deja vu experience, but I know I've had them from time to time.
