the nosebleed section
A seating area very high up in a stadium or theater, as for a sporting event, musical performance, play, etc., which typically costs less money but has a restricted view. "Nosebleed" refers jocularly to the effects of extremely high altitudes on the body, which can often cause nasal hemorrhaging, among other symptoms. I wish you wouldn't be so stingy when you're buying tickets. I'm sick of watching football games up in the nosebleed section! I waited too long to get tickets to the concert, so all that was left was a seat in the nosebleed section way in the back.
A slice of an object or substance that can be viewed under a microscope. Where is the thin section of that mineral specimen? I want to take a look at it under the microscope.
To separate or divide some area: A bookcase sectioned off the sitting area from the dining area. The apartment had no rooms, so we sectioned it off with screens.
