There is no purpose, make your own life. As a wise man once said, "if you're bored then you're boring."

Asking what the meaning of life is presupposes that there even is a meaning of life in the first place. So that makes the question itself a logical pharmacy.

Ask a better question next time.

You should watch Babylon 5. It is a television show that seeks to answer a few seemingly simple questions:

Who are you?

What do you want?

Why are we here?

Do you have anything worth living for?

Ultimately, you can't turn away from death simply because you're afraid of what might happen without you. That's not enough! You're not embracing life. You're fleeing death. And so you're caught in between, unable to go forward or backward. Your friends need what you can be when you are no longer afraid, when you know who you are and why you are and what you want, when you are no longer looking for reasons to live, but can simply be.

For example OP. You cannot ask if sucking the farts out of strangersí asses is the meaning of life.

However, you can say, sucking the farts out of strangersí asses is the meaning of your life, and it would be quite accurate.

I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law.
We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody.
Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight - brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.

That emptiness and lack of meaning is your God-shaped hole. Until if and when you recognise it as such and become ready to start getting it filled, you could do, for example, the following:

Kill some time and give yourself temporary purpose by acquiring an avatar. Just pass your eyes down the left size of this page. Lotsa funny and interesting ones hey? Think of how much excitement it'll be carefully choosing which pic, of the billions out there, is the right one for you. And then working out what text to put under it, maybe writing something original, or perhaps some wisdom-dripping famous quote, or perhaps something pithy from popular culture. One thing leads to another, for instance I just looked up the word 'pithy'! Then the creative fun of cropping and maybe editing the pic. Then, finally, enjoying the rewards of hard work and showing it off by posting in GBS a lot!

I'm here because of my parents, they're here because of theirs, and their parent's parents were here because of their parents, and so on until presumably a primate decided to come down from a tree because the planet's climate had a drastic enough change that necessitated a new step in order for said primate to survive.

Or maybe G-d did it, who knows.

One of the books of the Bible, Ecclesiastes is basically an essay asking why are people are here and what is the point of living. It starts out with "Everything is futile!" and pretty much ends the same way but at the very end has this "The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments for this is the whole obligation of man."

It also says early on "There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and find enjoyment in his hard work." Which is a pretty solid mantra.
