Man trapped in an 8-year "Groundhog Day" loop baffles scientists

Doomed to relive the same memories over and over again.

A 23-year-old man in the UK is stuck in an ongoing eight-year loop of déjà vu, according to a report published in Journal of Medical Case Reports, and his situation has neuroscientists completely stumped.

The patient, who has a history of anxiety and a family record of obsessive compulsive disorder, started experiencing persistent déjà vu in 2007, after taking LSD during his first year of university. Although some of the episodes only lasted minutes, they could also persist for much longer. The patient told scientists that he felt "trapped in a time loop" and found the experiences "very frightening". He stopped watching TV, listening to the radio, or reading newspapers and magazines, as he felt like the content had been plucked from his memories. As you can imagine, this only made his anxiety worse.

1. Hell, I'm still wondering if the trip I started years ago has ended yet.
