Earlier this year, Facebook launched a live video streaming feature, Facebook Live, which has seen several new improvements in the past few months. In an aggressive effort to promote the tool, Mark Zuckerberg yesterday hosted his first-ever Townhall Q&A on Facebook Live. Zuckerberg had asked users to post their questions in the comments section, and the ones with most votes would be addressed by him. The Live video has been viewed by over 7 million people by now.

The questions for Zuckerberg ranged from geeky product-based questions, to outright hilarious. Even Zuckerberg said that the most interesting things about these Q&As are the silly questions some people ask. Following are some of the best moments from Zuckerberg’s first-ever Live Q&A.

Is Mark Zuckerberg a lizard?
The first out of the lot of the most funny questions was, Mark, are the allegations true that you are secretly a lizard? And look at that, Mark completely denied all allegations and said, I am gonna have to go with a no on that. I am not a lizard. Come on Mark!
To the question, Zuckerberg sarcastically commented, But keep the high quality comments coming in please, this is surely on track to be a great Live Q&A if we continue getting stuff at that level of quality.
Hell no, it s Jerry Seinfeld!
And then suddenly the Live video took a very interesting turn. Zuckerberg left his viewers on hold for a second, only to return to the screen with the famous comedian Jerry Seinfeld. And that s when things got really interesting.
Zuck s pterodactyl daughter has turned him into a morning person
Zuck explained Jerry Seinfeld all about the Q&A he was hosting and invited him to answer a few questions with him. However, before that Seinfeld had some questions of his own. The first question he asked Zuckerberg was the time he woke up in the morning yesterday. To which Zuck replied, 6 AM, and talked about how he was never a morning person, but now his daughter Max, who he called a pterodactyl, has turned him into one. By the way, pterodactyls are flying reptiles!
Zuck s two challenges for the year
Jerry then asked Zuck the first thing he did in the morning. And like most of us, he too picks up his phone and checks what s been up on Facebook, and who buzzed him on WhatsApp. Jerry then brought up the topic about workouts, that s when Zuckerberg told him that he has two challenges set for himself this year — first is that he wants to run 365 miles this year, which means at least one mile a day. (Which by the way, Jerry thought wasn t a challenge at all, and I totally agree.) Second, being his project on building an AI that controls his home.
Jerry Seinfeld takes a dig at Zuck s AI project
Zuck very enthusiastically began to explain how he is able to talk into his phone and command the AI to turn off the lights or turn down the temperature, or let people through the door. To which Jerry Seinfeld had a hilarious comment, he said, Isn t it funny you work so hard to just eliminate a little bit of effort; to get the door is not that much of an effort. The comment totally left Zuck puzzled.
Zuck and Jerry get invited to a party.
Another interesting moment of the video was when Jerry and Zuck got invited to a party in the locality. One of the users, living near the Facebook Headquarters, commented You should totally come out to our block party, your wife and kids are welcome too. But Jerry declined the offer.
Jerry Seinfeld is socially uncomfortable
Wrapping up the video, Seinfeld told Mark that it s nice how he has made a product like Live video and he wants to put the social experience out there, however, he wants to just take it away! When asked why, he laughed and said, because I am not comfortable.
