Depends on your OS. Things almost always run faster on subsequent access
- usually due to OS caching of disk reads but data can be cached in
PostgreSQL and your storage subsystems as well.
Ensuring that *everything* is flushed almost requires restarting your
system. Depending on your OS, you may be able to flush the disk cache
and restart PostgreSQL and get "close enough".
Depending on your query, you may be altering the underlying tables so
getting exact repeatability is unlikely.
