8, although I'll wager that most people (who haven't read this comment) say 5.

there appear to be eight letter "f"'s unless you mean "F" then there are two.

Eight. I know, it's one of those exercises that says, "people don't read the letters in 'of'." Guess doing a lot of proofreading helps to nix that. ;)

Two if you only count 'F'. Eight if you also count 'f'. (This quiz/trick/whatever won't work as well on a computer with geeks 'cause they'll use the computer to count.)

Or they're just plain geeky and very literal :)
