This is now possible.
Announced in a recent blog post, you can now use a bunch of new search operators, including RFC 822 message ID.
From Gmail Help - Using advanced search
Find a message by the message-id header
Meaning: Locates the exact message ...
If you click "1-20 of [...]" you will see options to jump to the Newest or Oldest. The Oldest option isn't available if Gmail is still calculating the results so you may need to wait until the query finishes processing. Wait some time and hit the Older button to update the menu.
The default search works as though there is an implied AND operator between each search key-value pair:
is:pr is:open author:monishdeb
If you specify more than one key-value pair for a key, it uses the last one, and suppresses earlier ones in the query when results are presented.
The advanced search works as though there is an implied OR operator between ...
Thanks to this answer, I've discovered that amazon respects + before a keyword too!
For example: Radeon +7990 will give you exactly 7990's results and not variations on models like 6990 or 7970 like it normally does.
Perhaps this is because when linking to Google+ members the + is a prefix to the member name.
See, e.g, Google Kills Its Other Plus, and How to Bring It Back on Wired:
Google wouldn’t disclose exactly why they phased it out, though it seems obvious that they’re paving the way for Google+ profile searches. When Google+ launched, instead of adopting ...
I just realized that I can narrow down the search results with more search operators.
Specifically, the before:1999/01/01 is very useful for this! I can set progressively older dates to reduce the results until I see what I need.
GitHub's built in search covers the and, not, and or operators, as well as various other comparisons. GitHub's general guidelines on searching are located here: https://help.github.com/articles/searching-github/

Road.li lets you put in your start point, end point, and a query, and it will show you places that match the query along your route. It also shows how much time each place adds to your trip.
It is a tool that I created.
As of July 2015, at least there is no reliable way to use a NOT operator.
At least on Amazon.de searching for hard drive -usb will reduce the number of USB drives, but already the last result on the first page contained "USB" in the title.
Searching for tischventilator -usb (German for table fan) on the other hand pushes usb devices even more to the top ...
As the title says, is it possible to look up the Facebook profile which corresponds to a particular email address, if there is one? What's the simplest way to do so?
Yeah, just enter the email address in to the search box. If that's known to facebook then it'll bring up that person.
You should be able to search your timeline with Qsearch
Enter your query after authorizing the application and you should see something like the following
There is also the option to search other timelines
It searches the metadata as well so you can search for YouTube videos like
You can search only for reminders by adding the search operator "is:reminder" to your search.
If you want only reminders that have not been marked done, add "in:inbox"
keyword is:reminder in:inbox
I tried several things and found some things out.
You can't change it by yourself.
The most contacted address is picked when there are multiple ones.
When you haven't contacted a person before, the most recently added address is picked.
The order in which the addresses are listed up in the contact details is unimportant.
It's sad that there is now way of ...
Google hasn't said, but the speculation amongst the Technorati is that it's related to Google+. Now that they've got The Plus and they're integrating it everywhere, they're likely reserving it for some specialized search related to Google+.
What that might be? Your guess is as good as mine.
