Sentence 9

His sentence:
The brain controls pain in other parts of the body, but there are no sensory nerves in brain tissue itself; you could cut a person's brain apart bit by bit, and there would be no pain.
from Death Be Not Proud by John Gunther

This compound-complex sentence uses semi-colons and fan boys that help explain how part of the brain works and/or some of what the brain does.

My sentence:
The mom controls fights in the family, but there is no dad to help with the situations; she could snap her fingers once, and the children would settle down.
