PS. A square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square.

40 obvious ones:
small embedded squares = 5*2 = 10
1x1 squares = 16
2x2 squares = 9
3x3 squares = 4
4x4 squares = 1
I'm guessing there's meant to be some sort of trick. If I go crosseyed and hold it there it becomes 80. If I turn my head 90 degrees and go crosseyed I can get a lock which makes it easier to hold it, by lining up the two small embedded squares, not sure how many there is then. You could probably also make some more by printing it out and folding the paper. You could use a shitty display or a magnifying glass and count each black pixel as a square.

40 odd number something?
Fucking heaps. Squares in squares. But the only one which can't be mirrored is the biggest square containing them all, so has tobe an odd number. Everything inside is mirrored at least once
wait the centre 2x2 square. That can't be mirrored. So even.
Fuck me. 40 maybe? :(

Hah, counting is so pedestrian. Google image search leads me to believe that 40 is the correct answer, but strangely none of the original posters of this image ever seem to answer their own questions :S

Lol, how did people put things up straight before the iPhone spirit level app? Is it sad that I actually use the bubble level on my phone for stuff? Or is it awesome? (I also have a normal spirit level or 3).

There can't really be an answer.
The picture itself is a square.
There are like 50000 combinations of squares in that one picture so.
