comment けれども as a neutral connector
All of your example sentences sound unnatural except for the last one about beer. It is 曖昧だけど, not 曖昧けど.

comment What's the meaning of ナーミンナイト in this song lyric?
My gut feeling as a Japanese-speaker tells me there is more to it than that. That is the play on words that I strongly feel was intended between 「なあ、みんな = "Listen, everybody!", "OK, everyone!"」 and 「ナイト = "night"」.

comment Are there a kanji for マル and バツ (O and X, right and wrong)
If one ever used 『罰』, native speakers would take it to mean "punishment" 100% of the time. No one would take it to mean the "X" mark we get on a test signifying "incorrect answer". That I could guarantee.
