Informal introduction to Grothendieck topologies

I trot out all the opinions and jokes I can remember about G-topologies. Finding appropriate formal definitions or properties is not necessarily my forte (for which see Grothendieck topologies or sites or topoi are just categories with the categorical properties of categories of sheaves, so that they are just a little technical vehicle for cohomogy. What you actually do with them depends on the actual context, and usually involves a lot of detailed hard work. Classical topology, Zariski topology, etale topology, fppf and fpqc flat topologies, crystalline site, rigid analytic G-topology.
