GREAT interview statement from Christian Freeling:
free translated:

"They started to work on me. I married Sietje in the meantime and the family thought it about time that i should achieve something in life. I followed the teachers school in Hengelo and became after that teacher in math. A complete wrong choice. In that regime of schooleducation i didn't fit at all. How could i teach someone else something, who doesn't care for it. You must see the beauty of math,
the choreography of numbers. When i had sex with someone and still couldn't come, frequently i thought of prime numbers. That worked."

note Freeling is also inventor of Havannah. He bets 1000 euro at it that no machine can beat him at it. He'll lose that money soon :)

Original article quote:
"Ze begonnen op me in te praten. Ik was inmiddels getrouwd met Sietje en de familie vond het tijd worden dat ik wat van mijn leven ging maken. Ik volgde de lerarenopleiding in Hengelo en werd vervolgens leraar wiskunde. Een totaal verkeerde keuze. Ik paste helemaal niet in het regime van het onderwijs, van het leraar zijn. Hoe kan ik nu iemand iets willen leren, die dat niet ziet zitten. Je moet de schoonheid van wiskunde, de choreografie van getallen, willen zien. Als ik seks met iemand had en ik wilde nog niet klaarkomen, dacht ik vaak aan priemgetallen. Dat hielp."

Now that´s a good point!!
Could be a subject for a post-graduate work in applied maths: "Prime Numbers may help avoid premature ejaculation"
