Without looking in a dictionary, what do you think these words mean?

Certainty
Certainties

I ask because I'm wondering if people think these words mean the same thing that I think they mean..

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Certainty - positive of my opinion
Certainties - Something that is bound to happen.

Certainty means both of these. I can have certainty that I am right about this. It is a certainty that someone will think I am not. Certainties is the plural of both, but is not often used for the first one.

It can also be used of a person - Fred is a certainty for the prize this year - again the plural is not common.

Certainty - the name of a boat that is almost certainly going to hit an island and sink.


Certainties - an archipelago that the contains an island that the Certainty will certainly hit and sink.
