  1. “Fail” as a noun is rediculous. All it does is mark the writer as someone trying way too hard to be cool, because it is so unnatural you would need to force yourself to say it. There’s a reason why I’ve only heard “fail” used verbally once, and that is because it is quite clumsy and much harder to change our spoken language in daily usage than our typed words.

    • How about commenting on the video instead of venting about the wording in the title?

      Guess what – the internet is completely different from verbal speech. You might not like it, but you’re not going to change it.

      Nice compilation and nice music – helps take a bit of the tension off while watching people fall and such.

    • Fail as a noun maybe is not the right thing to do, but we most consider that languages are “alive” and they are in cosntant change. We can embrace this change or reject it. Besides, I also believe that its a minority those who use Fail in that context.

      Does anyone know how this Fail business began? Maybe it got popular because of 4chan but where did it start?
