The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

180 has "do a 180" in an example sentence, and a usage note saying it's used with do. Actually, you can hang, make, or flip a 180 as well, and you can say things like "it was a complete 180 from". There doesn't seem to be anything idiomatic about having do in this phrase. Chuck Entz (talk) 03:37, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Delete. But the sense of 180 should be expanded, or another definition added. My understanding of 180 is when a car does a screeching U-turn. --Dmol (talk) 09:57, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
It's any sort of half-turn really, widely used in juggling (180, 360, 720, 1080 and less common is 1440 just because so few people in the world can do them). Mglovesfun (talk) 10:15, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
