In my office, the "significant time" for a code review is the 5-10 minutes between "Hey, have time for a code review?" and "Thanks". All code reviews are in person and pre-commit. Bugs are occasionally found, and the savings in not having to fix those bugs later are significantly higher than the time it takes to do code reviews.
The confusion here is income tax vs sales tax. The following is based on New York state tax law, but may be applicable here:
If (using your example) you buy ingredients at the supermarket and your wife makes the meal, there is no sales tax because unprepared food is not taxed.
If you buy a prepared meal at a restaurant, you pay sales tax.
If your employer gives you a free lunch, you don't pay sales tax on that, but you must report it as income on tax day, just like your salary. If you ate 50 meals that year, with an approximate value of $10 each, you would need to report $500 of income.
All this said, you should donate to the policeman survivors fund (I do) but also be aware there are a dozen other professions who die at a higher rate than they do (including farmers, alaskan fisherman, and coal miners).

There is nothing you could do on an IBM brand 286 PC that you cannot do on an Android tablet. You can literally run the very same binaries files for the same software. So, if an IBM PC was a PC, then an Android tablet is a PC.
What about typing at an acceptable rate?

Here in the UK the plural of Lego is indeed Lego
Ah, I never knew that. It might be an American preference to add the s.
I suspect that if I told my son to "put away your lego", he would put away one brick and think he was very clever.
I had my fair share of legos when I was a child
Did you have a sands pit
Are you saying the plural of lego is lego, or that lego is already plural? Would you say "come play with my lego"? If the singular of "sand" is "a grain of sand", is the singular of "lego" "a block of lego"?
and a waters pistol?
Wait, legos are liquid now?
My first thought was "obviously you're frame locked to 45fps"
