Exhaustion: extreme weakness or fatigue

"Ruling during a revolution is hard. But ruling after a revolution is even harder."
-Professor Cooper at our midnight review session for our final tonight

A parallel interpretation:
Staying awake during an all-nighter is hard, but staying awake the day after an all-nighter is even harder.

We are all starting to show clear signs of exhaustion. My favorite one so far:

"One time I made a song to remember the presidents of the U.S. in order. It goes, American presidents are number one! G-" (confused face and long pause)

Staley couldn't remember our first president's name. If we can't remember George Washington I don't know how we are going to remember 2,000 years of British history for a final monday.
