Another sign used in Sweden, although less common now, that might get you into trouble elsewhere, is the "slit across the throat with the thumb". It's used to tell someone to stop their vehicle or stop their engine.

The we have the sign of humping the air while shouting "Yes! Yes! Yes!" as a general sign of happiness over a success. Increasingly more common, but should be avoided in more formal circumstances.
