A "blind" is a required bet that the two people sitting to the left of the button have to make before a hand begins.  The first player pays the small blind and the second player pays the big blind, which is double the small blind.  For tournament games, the blinds increase periodically.

Mucking a hand means to throw your cards away without revealing them.  In professional Poker, you typically give them to the dealer.

"In front" just refers to table position which determines play order.
