    A cool 19.1 mil apiece after taxes. :eek:

    7 co-workers split the NY State Mega Million jackpot after the man who's turn it was to buy the quick pick in the group was cut off in line at the store.

    SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — The seven state workers from the Albany, N.Y. area who won last week's $319 million Mega Millions jackpot may have gotten some extra luck from the patience and appetite of the man delegated to buy the winning ticket.

    Mike Barth was at a newsstand in downtown Albany to buy the random Quick Pick ticket for the group when he decided to pick up a candy bar.

    "I was at the counter. It was my turn to buy a ticket when I reached down to grab a Snickers bar from the candy display and someone reached over me, actually cut in front of me to buy a ticket," the 63-year-old from suburban Bethlehem said Thursday. "I thought about saying something but decided to just let it slide. I bought the next ticket."

    The group said they haven't decided if they'll leave their state jobs, but they've got plans for things like buying a dishwasher, tires and college educations for their kids.

    You don't really care, do you.
    I could live very well just on the base interest that money would accrue.

    Awesome story and kudos to the patient guy!
