Let me guess: "Have you ever entered a fictional construct?" and "Have you ever entered a simulated environment?"

I got 3 points.

This puts us both in the category of Virgin-Saint.

(Note: "Have you ever carked yourself back into a mortal human?" doesn't count unless you started out as something else. "Do you consider yourself to be the "same" you not care" doesn't count unless you've actually moved from one substrate to another at some point. And "Have you lived more than a subjective century?" doesn't count the marriage multiplier, even if your mother-in-law moves in with you.)
