An acronym for "Masturbating In the Common Room Openly," typically the common room or lounge of a college dorm. Often phrased as "pulling a MICRO."
Richard pulled a MICRO when he was alone the other day, but he was so scared to get caught that he moved the fridge in front of the door. I don't think that's very open at all.

Micro: Mini, small, tiny.

Micro is also a term used in the RTS "Starcraft," as a term for modified unit control.

Micro can also refer to the descriptions of micro-organisms.

Micro as a unit of measurement is defined as: "One millionth."
"Have you seen my micro hot-wheels?"

"He was able to defeat me because he has really good micro."

"Micro-organisms are too small to be seen by the human eye."

"One millionth of an inch is called a Micro-inch"
