Once used to describe tales of incredible feats and events, with plots sometimes world-threatening in scope, told with elevated language; now used by any dumbass to describe something as mundane as curly fries.
Beowulf is an epic poem about the ultimate viking warrior and his victories against nigh-unkillable monsters.

Lord of the Rings is an epic novel spanning several volumes, where the fate of the world rests in the hands of an unlikely band of heroes.

"You should taste these epic onion rings, bro."

"I'm going to take an epic dump, bro."

"I have to do my epic taxes, bro."

"Watch this epic Vine video, bro."

A word used in the 2006-2012 era, presumably to describe something as resembling an epic poem (ignoring the fact that most of the users probably didn't know what that was). Today using the word "epic", unless being used to describe scope, and sometimes even then, makes you look horribly dated and trying too hard to be cool, like a 40-year-old who still wears graphic T-shirts. Instead, the new "hip and modern crowd" uses some combination of the words "swag", "#yolo", "cray-cray", and "twerk" in random order as if somebody had jammed a metal rod into the vocabulary part of their brain and replaced it with a Twitter feed, which also explains their spelling.
"Man, that new rollercoaster's so epic. Here's my BlackBerry, go take a picture while I'm on it."

"Dude. You twerkin' with me? Epic is like, five years old now. So un-yolo. You just lost your swagalicious badge."

"But we're best friends!"

"Nuh-uh-uh, not anymore. *rips off badge* I am so putting this on Instagram so everybody can see the time that you lost your swag badge and peed your pants, 'cause I know that those weren't yellow when you bought them."

It is the most overused word in the english language. It has two definitions. The first one is that it's a synonym for crap. The second definition is that it means classic "cool" or old fashioned or lord of the rings world of warcraft wizards 101 middle agesy or disneyish(lame) type cool(or in some cases "cool"). Cipe is supposed to be "the new epic" because it's epic spelled backwards. But it's kinda lame. It even sounds lame. "Air" or "scythe" sound way better. Scythe and Air might become the new words to describe something beyond the most awesome awesomeness ever seen!
Situation 1
Dude1: Whoa! that video was so epic!
Dude2: That's what you say about nearly every video you see. *5 hours later.
Dude1: I just took an epic ship. I made an epic! It was so crap!
Situation 2
Guy1: *watches top 10 epic songs*
Guy1: That was so epic!
Guy2: If by epic, you mean lord of the rings middle ages like then sure.

Guy2: GET OUT OF THE WAY, guy 1! I gotta chat with my hot smart(Seriously!) girlfriend on this gaming site and then I gotta look at some videos of this hot fictional videogame/TV character.

3) He fell off his skateboard and hit his nuts... EPIC FAIL

Epic is currently used by most groups of people to describe anything extraordinary. Most of these people fail to recognize that Epic started in World of Warcraft referring to the highest level of loot gear you could normally get (I know legendary is higher but the only people you see with that shit are fucking crazy). Most people look down at those who play World of Warcraft but ironically use many of the terms that they came up with.
