Sorry to break up the hilarity, but can I get an ELI5 of bitcoin? These seems like the place I am most likely to get truthful answers.

I watched a Youtube video on the subject, but it somewhat confusing to my plebe, non-STEMlord/Liberal arts loser brain.
So why is it exactly people think bitcoin is so great? What exactly is this blockchain stuff? Isn't a means of verification already built-in to bitcoin? Why people furiously jerking themselves over blockchain? What is all this stuff about "off-chain" transactions? How do these wallet applications work? How do you have fractional values of 1BTC exist?
I am actually the only person in existence who went university and did not take an economics class. The only cryptocurrency I understand is the fictional one described by Neal Stephenson (whom I recently figured out is actually a libertarian thus destroying many of adolescent memories of reading his books) Cryptonomicon. Although his vision of a decentralized, electronic currency looks pretty dated (the book was published in 1999) by today's standards as it was backed by sweet, sweet gold.
I feel like this subreddit is pretty funny, but a lot of the humour is over my head.
Edit: The responses I have received have been very helpful and edifying. There is some very good and interesting information here, as well a bit of what seems like healthy debate.
