    I'm re-reading an old Heinlein novel where he uses this expression a lot, and Google tells me it's a Hawaiian term, but I have not found a definition. I can make up all kinds of plausible definitions from context, such as "no trouble", "no $#!+", "no shenanigans", etc... but what is the real deal?

    Thx!

    I believe it means "not angry"....but I could be wrong.
