Very funny "solution".
This does point out a challenge though -- if you have an outlier like a single day of tons of traffic in Google Analytics, how do you not let that change your entire scale so that all other information is lost. I always end up taking annotated screenshots and superimposing things because Excel and the other tools I use don't have a built-in way to handle that.
