Variables - what are they for?

I came across the tutorials about using variables in Storyline, but I fall at the first hurdle, because I don't get what they're used for. I feel as if there is a 'basic grounding in the use of variables' tutorial missing. 

Could someone give some examples of the circumstances under which variables might be used in the first place? Once I've got that, I reckon I'd be able to follow the tutorial with a little more 'oh, okay' and a little less 'huh?'
