Default prime producing polynomial

See this polynomial

f(n) = n^2 + n + 41

assume n is a positive integer

I once received a standing ovation for a presentation on this topic at a 3 day math conference. It was at Salishan Oregon USA, at a conference for community college math teachers. I have done some community college math teaching. I hope you find this interesting.
