Are we all at most 50th cousins?

I've seen the figure 50 tossed around.

Is it true?

If not, then what is the actual number? An estimate would be fine.

(I wanted to share this odd factoid with my girlfriend but I decided that I better get it fact-checked first. I don't know, I just like making her feel awkward - "we're at most 50th cousins!! Incest!")
