There's a whole bunch of people out there who seem to think that the rapidly approaching 2016 Olympics are going to totally suck based on a number of factors, like the outbreak of the Zika virus in the home country (Brazil), the host city's (Rio de Janeiro) declaration of financial emergency, and police at a local airport who told incoming tourists they're on their own if they run into trouble. 

All that being said, the above video shows a guy in Joinville, Brazil, sprinting up to a runner carrying the Olympic flame and trying his best to put it out with a fire extinguisher. The footage can be seen as a metaphor, depending on your outlook on life, of either the impending trainwreck that you think the events will be or of proof that no amount of chaos can ruin the spirit of the Olympics.

Conversely, it can also be seen as one lone jerk off trying his damnedest to rain on everyone's parade. It's your call (though, for what it's worth, our money is on the second one).

Back on June 26, another man tried to dump a bucket of water on the flame because somebody dared him to do it, which is as good a reason as any, we suppose.

In both instances the flame refused to go out.
