1. "Kablooie!" is an informal expression used by some westerners to indicate in an excited way that a contradiction was found. For example, "... which implies 1 = 2, kablooie!" which in formal English would be rephrased as, "... which implies 1 = 2, which is a contradiction, therefore the premises are rejected." |
The character Sheldon in Big Bang Theory when saying "Bazinga!" is sometimes saying, "I am smarter than you. I one-upped you. I got you. Nya nya. And I am having fun making a joke of you. Ha ha nya nya!" However, sometimes the message in "Bazinga!" is friendlier, translated merely as, "Yay! I got the solution! I feel happy!" Certainly "Bazinga!" is not meaningless noise from the Sheldon character since the character would not utter a meaningless noise.

3. American and British English agree on very much, however, the sort of difference in language you observe is showing up with increasing importance in Finance (which is trying to work without mathematics) and in Economics (which never worked with mathematics). For example, yesterday i was correcting wrong English that was written in Financial regulations. The arithmetic is easy. The regulation stipulates employees are consider a finite set of companies by tallying their total sales each into a community total and then in the next column in a spreadsheet, write the proportion of the community total each individual total contributes. The financial badly written regulations tried and failed to say the same in a whole paragraph of many sentences and wannabe sentences which are missing verbs, and called the proportions "representatives" as though they were chosen from a set of similars, changing definitions willy-nilly to be as confusing as possible while seeming to try to sound smart. The thing about intelligence is we sound smart including while communicating straightforwardly about something simple and with simple words. So the financial regulators and economists who write that way to feign possession of brains are being stupid. I mention this since it is relevant to the real answer about the difference between American and British English. For example, some in the US Navy want to take forever to let America be a safe place for turtles whereas British policy as of 2012 ended the public debate of whether we the people prefer Stupid versus Smart leaders in our society.
