What gestures are common to everyone around the world?

I mean things that mean the same thing no matter where you go.

Each country has particular customs and cultural practices that they adhere to, so assumptions may be ill-advised. For example, in the Middle East, the North American gesture for "stop" means "go". If you plan to travel in the future, researching into your destination's customs would be wise to make sure you don't disrespect or offend the natives.

One of the most common gestures that I can think of is that of the common handshake as well as waving goodbye and hello to someone.
