The modern world is full of wonders. From technology to spirituality, we seem to be basking in the glory of everything. And yet like every bygone century, we keep making the same mistakes over and over again. This is enough for you to think that maybe the universe is pulling a prank on you or maybe the modern world is just an illusion. Here are 5 bizarre facts that will make you lose faith in the modern world.
#1. Your life expectancy depends on your bank balance
