# Hi There!
# You may be wondering what this giant blob of binary data here is, you might
# even be worried that we're up to something nefarious (good for you for being
# paranoid!). This is a base85 encoding of a zip file, this zip file contains
# an entire copy of pip (version 20.2.4).
# Pip is a thing that installs packages, pip itself is a package that someone
# might want to install, especially if they're looking to run this
