This is a bad idea.  You are changing the globals of another module.
You are lucky you didn't break anything.
Better would be:
           elapsed = end_time - start_time
then use things like:
           print elapsed
           print elapsed.seconds

Try this:
     print dir(elapsed)
The answer should become obvious.
