cousin removal

Wow, this is confusing and inconsistent. I thought I’d figured out a method to it all. Just say your cousins’ kids are “removed”. But there are other “removeds”. Those I thought were my second cousins are actually “first cousins once removed”. No, I don’t actually use any of these terms and just call them all cousins, but it’s amusing.
