Tempus Fugit?

Max sits in seat 13F in 'Tempus Fugit'/'Max'?

Tempus fugit is a Latin phrase, usually translated into English as "time flies"

What happened on October 13th?
I recently watched the two X-Files TV episodes mentioned above, which are about a guy named Max who gets abducted by aliens in a mid-air flight while sitting in seat 13F, and SPOILER ALERT ... everyone on the plane experiences 9 minutes of missing time ... before it crashes.
It's totally lame as a story-line I think, not the missing time thing, but a UFO pulling a section of the plane out to take a passenger out of his seat.
A lot of airlines don't have a row 13, because of the superstitions surrounding the number 13.
Birthday cake and Friday the 13th?-)
'Tempus Fugit'
What Happened on February 23, 1964?
I just happened to be reading a book about superstitions written by a guy named Max Cryer when I watched the two X-Files episodes and couldn't help thinking of birthdays and the superstitions surrounding them.
Books and Superstitions?
Chris Carter born: October 13, 1956
Chris Carter, the creator of 'The X-Files' was born on October 13th, but his birthday fell on a Saturday, not a Friday, like Fox Mulder's did;-)
What Happened on October 13, 1961?
So did Chris and the screenwriters of The X-Files just give Mulder and Scully random birthdays for the show with no real significance to the shows' content, with Chris giving Mulder his own birth-date, but just 5 years after Chris', which just happened to land on a Friday?
You might want to read what happened on the anniversaries of those characters' birthdays, like the first Bible printed on the Gutenberg Press and the persecution of the Christians by Rome on Scully's birth-date (remember that Scully is a Roman Catholic and wears a cross around her neck).
And the arrest of the heads of the Knight's Templar and
Greenwich in London established as the universal time meridian of longitude on Mulder's (and Carter's) birth-date.
Timing is everything in life I guess?
I wrote a post back in 2012 about a clock I used to have hanging on my wall with the words 'Tempus Fugit' on its face, but its hands could never keep up with time and I gave it to my mother and father to hang under their house where we used to get together for family get togethers, like Christmas and such.
I have no idea what mum did with the clock when dad died and the house was sold.
I'll have to ask her while she still remembers (hopefully).
Fox gives Dana an Apollo 11 key-ring on her birthday?
But I'd sure like to know what makes Chris Carter's mind tick, when it comes to'The X-Files'?

Can't Help Thinking That The X-Files Episodes Are More Stephen King Schlock Than Stanley Kubrick Masterpieces For Some Reason?
