Abstract: We construct a $ 2n$-dimensional real normed space whose (Banach-Mazur) distance to the set of spaces admitting complex structure is of order $ {n^{1/2}}$, and two complex $ n$-dimensional normed spaces which are isometric as real spaces, but whose complex Banach-Mazur distance is of order $ n$. Both orders of magnitude are the largest possible. We also construct finite-dimensional spaces with the property that all ``well-bounded'' operators on them are ``rather small'' (in the sense of some ideal norm) perturbations of multiples of identity. We also state some ``metatheorem'', which can be used to produce spaces with various pathological properties.
