    100% sure...will/be going to

    Hi,

    After 'one hundred sure/certain' which one sounds better to use, 'will' or 'be going to'? For example,

    1- I am 100% sure that something bad will happen.
    2- I am 100% sure that something bad is going to happen.

    I gather both could work, depending on the context. Anyway, I cannot make sure of it.

    Thanks.

    Just to clarify, RobertJ's "It matters not" is a rather old-fashioned and flowery way of saying the more common/modern "It doesn't matter".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
