If Google Analytics goes down, how do I keep my site working?

http://stackoverflow.com – Ok it's 19 Jan 2013 22:30 NZST and most of the internet seems to have come to a crawl as Google Analytics seems to be running really slow. Stackoverflow, Firefox.com, reddit and google searches are slow. Most importantly for me, my production business website is running slow or not loading at all. No it's not just my connection I tested it on my phone with 3G as well. Sites without Google Analytics seemed to be running fine. Now it may not be Google Analytics, my country' international gateway may be running slow or something. But evidence strongly suggests it might be Google Analytics. Now (HowTos)
