I watched this Pete Judo video and was annoyed by the assertion that diffusion image models represent a unique risk for academic integrity. You can cheat at research with just a regular computer, no AI required.


Either use the shell.nix or install Pillow, then just run gen.py. If you have timg, gen.py's output is the path of the generated file and can be directly piped into timg for display.
