Both of the possible uses for "QED" you mention, are places I would expect to see "BTW" instead.
(By the way: BTW stands for "by the way").

I'd also expect to see "FYI" used there.
(In case you don't know FYI stands for "for your information".)

Well I meant it would be something like this:

"What makes you so sure that the plural of octopus is not octopuses?"

"Well, blah blah blah blah....

etc.

etc.


...QED, the plural of octopus is octopodes."

Oh.
That's almost "correct" (that is, almost the same as the usage I'm used to).
The only difference is what I'm used to would end up with:
"... So the plural of octopus is octopada; QED"
