A word that has become just as overused as the word "random." It originally meant "lack of success" but over-use of the term has caused it to loose meaning.
Stop using the word "fail"! It's not cool, it's not funny, and it's not original.

A common term these days used by people in humourous, blunderous or stupid situations. It is commonly used online in a comical way especially on websites such as this and You-Tube and MSN conversations.
When a 16 year old gets owned by his mother in front of a supermarket - You say "Fail" at the 14 year old

Patrick Star lecturing Spongebob Squarepants on the concept of "fail": "I fail. You fail. He- she- me... fail. Fail; Failing; (We'll have thee fail; Failrama); Failology; the study of Fail. It's first grade Spongebob."

The act of doing something so awful you must never show your face again and God cries in pity for your soul.

The term can be expressed (written) two ways:

fail & Fail

The lowercase form expresses a smaller fail that no one will remember for longer than a week. Consider yourself lucky if you are simply charged with a "fail" crime.

The uppercase form of the word means that you have disgraced the human race and shall never be given respect again in your life, nor after that when you have gone to Hell either.
fail:

I failed when I lost that staring contest.

Fail:

Your mom Failed in bed last night.

adjective
1)a: describing any noun or event as having failed; b: the state of being a failure.

2)An internet meme that has become more commonplace in "RL" amongst those of the video game/internet culture.

The use of fail and its amusement are derived from video games out of the common "game over" screens or "mission failure" notifications. Often this is used in redundancy to create a sense of irony: Fail ____ is fail: in which case any noun is thus being identified by the adjective and described by it.
-"God that tank in VOA sucked ass..."
-"Fail DK is fail!"
