Its funny how the the smell of money makes thing so obvious.
From a technical point of view its about as likely as a snowball in hell. Poor assembly is the only way I know of to make bearings last that long.
I can say in near 30 years of fixing failed bearings only a few managed to get to the state other pieces failed.
You know of course that every future failure will happen "after the wreck"
