Erm, when you want to create a property (i.e. computed attribute).

from __future__ import division
class TimeDelta(object):
    def __init__(self, secs):
        self. seconds =secs

    def minutes(self):
        return self.seconds/60

    def hours(self):
        return self.minutes/60

    def days(self):
        return self.hours/24

td = TimeDelta(55555555555)
print td.days, "days", "=", td.hours, "hours", "=", td.minutes, "minutes"
