Homebrew uses sudo to prepare your /usr/local directory. 'sudo' stands for 'super user do' and it's a way to get your computer to do anything you ask it to do. It is the subject of a famous cartoon:

sudo make me a sandwich

$USER is a variable that contains your username. You can also run the command whoami in your terminal and it'll output your username.
