Looking at the Universal Postal Union pages on the matter, addresses on envelopes are usually right-justified and appear below the stamp. Why is this the case. Also, are the UK and Ireland the only exceptions?

What a drag.

It's possible to drag a message to a label in GMail by grabbing it from the leftmost edge. However, on a hi-res monitor, this can be quite difficult. Is there a hack or greasemonkey script that allows you to drag the message by clicking and dragging anywhere in the Subject rather than just the left edge?
