1: To not achieve one's goals.
2: To recieve a grade of less than 60/100 on a test.
3: A word which has become an instant giveaway for stupid teenage fucks who think they are clever because they say things like "EPIC FAIL" or "YOU FAIL". Originally, these and other stupid phrases incorporating the word "fail" were given birth within internet cesspots such as 4chan, but they have rapidly found acceptance among the adolescent population as the new, cool thing to say.
It is likely to become another pseudo-intellectual word popularized by the internet- further examples including words such as existentialism.
1: I wanted to fuck her in the ass, but even after I said that she'd do it if she really loved me, she said no. I failed.

2: At the DMV I scored a 15/100 on the Alcohol and Substance Abuse test. Suffice to say, I failed.

3: "You've never seen Donnie Darko? YOU FAIL."
"You don't like Napolean Dynamite? YOU FAIL."
"You think My Chemical Romance sucks the fucking sack?
"My mom made me clean my room? FAIL."
"Eat my brocolli and carrots? I DON'T WANT TO. YOU AND

When someone does not succeed, usually in a hilarious way. Pure awesomeness to see.

a funny, very ironic happening that leaves the person in question sad or hurt, but not dead.
On CoD4, trying to throw a grenade out of a window-only to hit the window-sill and bouncing back inside would be considered a fail.

Used as a noun to describe the state of something that has failed to accomplish its goals.

An Internet meme that is applied to any humorous or ironic item/topic. failquail.com has a lot of examples of what it means to fail.
failquail.com has an example of a bakery truck with the brand name "Bimbo" on the side of it. Clearly a marketing fail.

You fail for looking up 'fail' in UD.
