Cousin relationships deciphered

I don't think I know anyone who's been able to explain to me what makes a second cousin or a first cousin twice-removed. And since I've been wondering how to refer to my cousin who does not share the same grandparents, I found a great site that offers a simple explanation. Go to this link and scroll to the bottom of the page (the grid is superfluous and looks intimidating):

that's kind of weird, I was looking at this stuff about a month ago as well. Only I was trying to find the chinese names. I noticed you haven't had any comments in awhile, so I'm leaving some today. See you sometime next week.
