Asked in John the Baptist
Did John the Baptist eat bugs?
Yes, Matthew tells us: Mat 3:4 John's clothes were made of camel's hair; he wore a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. The Jews were permitted to eat locust, crickets and grasshoppers according to God's laws. (Lev. 11:22) This was, and still is, a common practice among desert dwellers. Some modern scholars, however, disagree that he ate bugs and argue that the reference to locust was meant as being the fruit of the locust tree. Linguistically, however, this argument doesn't hold, primarily due to the fact that it has been translated from the Greek. The Greek word for locust is "akrida." The word akrida, unlike its English counterpart, has no other meaning than locust, crickets and grasshoppers. Once again scripture has been misinterpreted by some due to the lack of knowledge of the original language.

Why 400 is not a leap year detailed answer needed?
400 would have been a leap year. The method for calculating leap years is a little complicated due to all the exceptions. Years that are a multiple of 4 are a leap year, UNLESS the year is a multiple of 100 (then it is not a leap year), UNLESS the year is also a multiple of 400 (then it is a leap year). Some examples 1800 - not a leap year because it is a multiple of 100 1900 - not a leap year because it is a multiple of 100 2000 - leap year because while it is a multiple of 100, it is also a multiple of 400 2100 - not a leap year because it is a multiple of 100 400 - leap year because while it is a multiple of 100, it is also a multiple of 400
