Why do you place the redstone torches on the side of a block rather than just on the ground?
I need the basics explained to me like I belong in assisted living.

The reason you place the redstone torch on the top or side of a block is to make it accept input.
The basic logic gate is a NOT gate, a repeater is made be placing 2 NOT gates together. Check out Bob's Minecraft Tutorials for a description on how to configure these (they are more about booster carts but part 2 has an excellent explanation of redstone repeaters and inverters).
1 NOT gate = Inverter
2 NOT gates = Repeater
You were spot on with your description of a NOT gate. Logic has 2 states, they can be ON/OFF, TRUE/FALSE, 1/0, YES/NO or any combination of 2 different values, it could be A/B.
A NOT gate simply outputs the opposite state to it's input, when the input is one state the output will be the other state, ie. it's saying the input is NOT what I am outputting, and because it's a choice of 2 values (or a Boolean), if it's not one it must be the other.
There are a lot of other useful things that can be done with logic gates, and they are all built using multiple NOT gates.
edit: I hadn't watched your video before posting this.

That's probably because you stopped paying your oil bill.
