Why is negative multiply negative equal to positive?

Negative in English terms means "opposite." Multiplication can represent "of". So, negative times negative is the "opposite of the opposite." And the opposite of an opposite is the same, hence positive, because "same" is the opposite of "opposite" and positive is the opposite of negative. So if you put it into English words, it actually makes some sense. In essence, negative and negative "cancel out."
