The popular use of the word 'fail' is a reduction of 'failed' because, well, people think its funnier. If you check out sitse like failblog.org, you will see pictures or videos of someone doing something, utterly failing, and then they get a big caption that says FAIL. I think this was the one that started the meme:<br />

While 'fail' was becoming popular, so was 'epic' which means something so massive, so important that it will be remembered throughout the ages.<br />
<br />
So an epic fail is when you fail so badly that it will never be forgotten and you will never live it down.
