Weird white dwarf pulsar baffles boffins as its pulsating pattern changes over decades

Well that is assuming that inertial mass is equivalent to gravitational mass. I always was uncomfortable about that myself; I have quite a large gravitational mass (compared to most skinny buggers) but my inertial mass is amazing when the wife asks me to cut the grass or do the washing up.

Mind you, when it comes down to software or other such matters my inertial mass makes a feather look like a lead cannonball.
