GPM J1839-10 is a "slow" pulsar.  Too slow to be a neutron star, its below the "death line".  So what could it be?

It probably went to the pub

It probably went to the pub :

There once was a pulsar so grand,

Who frequented the pub, glass in hand.

He drank 'til he swayed,

Spinning all night and day,

Now he spins with a slow, wobbly stand.

Cheers, ChatGPT

So he couldn't get ????,

Now he spins with a slow, wobbly stand.
