    Nope just practice and patience.

    Edit: basically your eyes each see a slightly different image and your brain mashes it together into one image. The goal here is to get your eyes to decouple the respective image of each eye and rather than combine them, they overlap instead and make a 3D illusion.

    First make the dancer spin clockwise then look again. Alternatively, try unfocusing your eyes a bit and look at all joints simulaneously
    I'm confused. I can't look at them all simultaneously.

    I am never able to see them no matter how hard I try (although I can see other 3D things perfectly fine). D: Can you explain it to me in a way that you haven't heard before?

    Damn, I never realised before seeing those puppies how much DV's helmet looks like the head of a penis. CANNOT UNSEE.

    There are all sorts of ways to explain it. I can't remember which one was the most helpful to me. Try to look beyond/through the picture, like you're focusing 4m or so beyond the monitor. That will make the picture a bit blurry but don't worry about that yet. Now look for points of depth in the picture first. Once you find a point of depth concentrate on bringing that into focus. If you can do that then the foreground images will start to jump out at you. After that it's just a matter of fine-tuning.

    This is the explanation I hear most often. I can't do this no matter how hard I try. :/

    There was a site with practice dots to help you learn how to do it but I haven't been able to find it again.

    One way to practice it though and actually see your progress is to make two dots just a bit apart on paper (like maybe 1 or 2 inches apart) and try to unfocus your eyes while looking at them. You'll see phantom dots appear and kind of float towards the center point between them - the goal of the practice is to overlap the phantom dots so that there appears to be three dots, the two you made and one false dot in between them.

    When you do it this way you can see your progress (or lack of) as the dots slowly move closer to the middle or further away depending on how close you are to doing it right.

    Just to give you an idea, the backdrop of the picture looks to be about a meter beyond the screen.

    I just open my eyes wide (not necessarily 100% open, but wider than normal) and stare at the picture, without blinking. Forcing myself to not blink seems to be the key, at least for me.

    After about 10 seconds or so, the picture gets weird. Kind of a mixture where most of it is blurry, but some lines are clear and sharper. At that point, I sort of look around trying to outline the lines that pop out in a 3-D sort of way. Usually once I figure out the main picture, the rest of it is easy to see.

    Usually adjusting my distance from the picture (while not blinking) helps as well. On my computer monitor, 2-3 feet away works for me. That may vary for you, though.

    Here's one more clue that might help you: The primary pic is the Pink Panther, and he's in the middle. There are other things as well, but I won't spoil it.
