If the class can be used both statically and as an instance why is it referring 
to $this? When called statically $this will not exist.

To refer to the class when in a static method use self...

class StaticClass
  public static $staticVariable = 1234;

  public static function staticMethod()
    return self::otherStaticMethod();

  public static function otherStaticMethod()
    return self::$staticVariable;
