A word that used to mean "not succeeding" and was used by normal, literate people.

But these days "fail" is mostly used on the internet by no-life teenage losers. (Sometimes even in real life)

They say phrases such as "this FAILS", "you FAIL at life" and "FAIL" and "EPIC FAIL".
Pathetic cunt: tHhis FAILZZ!!!

"Fail" is a word that is more than often overused online. Unfortunately it has spewed into mainstream society and now is being used in every day life, much like "epic".

People who "fail" generally are not even trying to accomplish anything, or they simply do something different than you. This word is most commonly used by annoying teenagers (who put a bad reputation on gaming), who shout "FAIL!" every time someone makes a slight error.

If you point out an obvious flaw by saying "FAIL" you're obviously a failure yourself for having lack of logic.
Kid: I just tripped because someone...tripped me.

Idiot who doesn't use logic to realize it wasn't the kids fault for being tripped, it was actually the other persons fault: FAIL!

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.
