1) Life is meaning
2) Maybe
3) Fun blondes do
4) Diet & Exercise
5) Billions of people
6) The Queen
7) A strong bond between two or more people
8) Stupid question. The answer is so personalised that no two people will assess their own happiness by the same criteria, and will require different things in their life in order to make them happy.
9) Yes
10) Another stupid question. You'll live until you die, factors like health & habits can affect the duration, but since you have no fixed value to start from, it's as pointless to weigh them up against each other as it is to ignore the possibility of random chance.

Overall, I can't really understand why people stress themselves over things like this. Personally I think that if you're plagued with doubt & ambiguity, you need a slap in the face, and you certainly shouldn't whine about your ignorance to other people.

Meaning of life:

life   
[lahyf] –noun
1. The condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally.
2. The sum of the distinguishing phenomena of organisms, esp. metabolism, growth, reproduction, and adaptation to environment.

Why do people think this is such a difficult question?

That is the definition of life, not the meaning of life.

These are the questions we used to ask sitting in a car watching the sun rise after a party in the early hours on a Sunday morning. :D
