English

Noun

daystar

  1. (hacker slang): the term DayStar can be used to refer to the Sun around which the Earth orbits. Often, it is used to denounce the existence of the sun, such as when exiting a dimly-lit building.
    Ex: "Arg, the evil DayStar burns my eyes!"

Usage note

Breaking down the word, one is made to understand that the Sun is, in fact, a star. This fact illustrates basic knowledge of solar system mechanics by the user of the term. As well, the word suggests dissociation with the sun, much the same as using an acronym in place of full words.
