The "not" of the 2000s. Something that is okay to say this year but if you say it next year will just get you looked at weird, like if you wear to go out in public with a fanny pack or wearing overalls with only one strap buckled. Used to approve of anything positively. Only momentarily, of course. Often piggybacked with "fail" as "epic fail". Another reason for other socities to despise the ineptitude of the human beings within ours.
"Epic" video game

"Epic" female

"Epic" clothing

"Epic" anything else that comes to mind.

Used to describe something very imposing, impressive, or extraordinary. Commonly coupled with words such as "fail" or "win". Something that is epic can be extraordinarily awesome, or extraordinarily blunderous. Although the word's definition has been warped by the internet population, something that is epic is usually something that can be remembered for a long while. "Epic" is commonly misused because something that is supposedly "epic" is actually rather unexciting and not out of the ordinary.
This is a quagmire of epic proportions.

Did you see me pwn that noob in Counter Strike? It was an epic win!

"EPIC." is actually a completely different word than "Epic", it is heightened exponentially. The spelling difference is that EPIC. is in all capitals at all times, and the period is actually married to the capitalized letters. For example, "EPIC ." <the period and the capitilzed letters are divorced in a way, and "EPIC." <the capitilized letters and the period are married. If the period and the capitilized letter are not married, then it is not the same word as "EPIC.". Anything including stealing, commandeering, pirates, YARR, french toast, KY jelly wrestling, pudding wrestling, jell-o wrestling, etc. are all included as being EPIC.

A word, similar to "extreme" in that it has been used to death by those 25 and under (either age or IQ) and will probably be nothing more than an archaic expression by the year 2050.
Taco Bell is now using "epic" in its advertising, giving me an extreme and epic pain in the ass.
