What does the phrase tiered Like bleachers mean?
The tiers on bleachers are the different levels of seats. I believe you are talking about a line from the poem "Oranges." The poet is just describing how the boxes of candles were stacked up like rows of bleachers, one on top of the other.

You know the metal benches that step up higher and higher toward the last rows of seats, like at a ball game? The benches at school on the ball field, that are built like a lo…ng set of stairs? Those are called bleachers! A good example of this is Taylor Swift - You belong with me. If you watch the video, she is on the benches singing "She's cheer captain, and I'm on the bleachers!" meaning that they other girl is on the pitch, being the cheer captain whilst Taylor is on the benches, playing in the band.
Bleachers are essentially benches typically found at outdoor sports venues which are not covered by a roof and are usually single-tiered. In baseball parks, the bleacher area …is typically located behind the outfield wall or fence. High schools and colleges also have bleachers at their outdoor sports facilities for spectator accommodation. Retractable bleachers are found at indoor sports venues such as gymnasiums and field houses. The name "bleachers" comes from the fact of this type of seating being uncovered and exposed to the sun causing them to alter their color or be "bleached". The spectators occupying these benches are often referred to as "bleacherites" or at Wrigley Field in Chicago, "bleacher bums".
To "come on like gangbusters" is a reference to the old radio show of the same name "Gangbusters". It was an early law enforcement cops and robbers type show….It made a try on TV, as did many radio shows. but did not last too long - just a few seasons. The opening sound bite of the show was the sound of tramping feet, as if an army were marching into your living room, followed by the sound of police vehicle sirens.( The TV version included a closeup of marching feet, followed by a fleet of cop cars driving out a garage, with lights blazing and sirens wailing.) The sound image was that of a whole army of police converging on the scene to get the criminal. So, "like gangbusters" means to go all out with maximum force to accomplish one's goal.
It is commonly used as an icebreaker when there is a long silence. A person who says 'I like pie' does not always like pie, they just say it because they feel like it!
It means simply this...someone was referring to smoking a joint (J, as in marijuana) by the bleachers (at school, some sporting event or park).
The phrase, " I like turtles," originated from the YouTube video where the interview lady interviewed this kid and he randomly says,"I like turtles." It doesn't mean anything …really, it's just said to be funny and copy what the little boy said.

It means you don't have much of a choice - if you don't enjoy it,you'll just have to "take your lumps" and suffer.
Without a specified context, I assume it means polar substances dissolve in polar solvents and non-polar substances dissolve in non-polar solvents.
it means that polar dissolves polar and nonpolar dissolves nonpolar
