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!"

Formerly used to describe the situation of not achieving the desired result in an undertaking considered to be somewhat important or monumental. In the context of performance in regards to the completion of a a test: to achieve a sub-par result, usually less than 70%.

Currently used by mindless sheep to commemorate the lack of desired intention, especially in regards to the most inconsequential of actions. No longer applies in the context of not passing a test (due to educational standards being so low that achievement of less than 70% is essentially impossible if one is not retarded).

One of the twenty words used in the "new" English language that is comprised completely of buzzwords.

A lack of success, a poor mark on an examination, to dwindle or become insufficient. A verb used without object. Currently at an all time high for generic, widespread misuse. The act of FAILURE being the most often intended and correct conjugation, which seems largely to have been forgotten.
Saying something was a FAIL is incorrect, and should be described as a FAILURE.
To misuse this word is to fail

Your rampant misuse of the word is a failure.

Word that is being consistently overused by assholes all around you so they can fit in and sound cool. Used to describe a minor disappointment in life, such as having a typo, tripping on your shoelace, or dialing the wrong number.
