It's just another one of those not-so-serious questions from me.

For those of you who doesn't know, there is a "counter" that is embedded in all Nikon cameras that keep track of how many pictures you have taken (more like how many times you press your shutter button). However, it is also to note that it is NOT 100% accurate but a good rough estimate. Here's a fact, not all cameras have that and not all brands have that. Canon, is an example, of one brand doesn't have that (or at least doesn't allow people access to such information as easily).

There are many ways to see this information and here's one of many


You have to upload a picture that you took that has the EXIF information intact. Then you'll get the information. Once you selected the file, click on "View Image From File", scroll down or do a string search for "Shutter Count".
