No, and not being part of Gen Y has nothing to do with it.
People as far back as I can remember, ALWAYS wear clothes. And I cant think of anyone off the top of my head, regardless of age, that even though they couldn't go without clothes on a daily basis, considers them a body part.
I wear a ballcap EVERYDAY. (laziness started it from not wanting to fuss with my hair, and now is part of what people assume to see me in, I get asked where it is if I don't have it). But its not 'part of my body"
So i think they are mixing up, much like going out without clothes or me without my hat, "I would feel as I am missing something all day" with "I feel I'm missing a body part".
Also I thought Gen Y was MORE tech savvy...but this "57 percent share their email address if they receive some sort of discount in return"...seems to indicate they are not.

For everyone who thinks they are above average, they probably don't realize that they have a larger dependency to a computer and the Internet's hivemind than they do with a fresh new idea or opinion they can think of in their head.
While I don't think of my phone as a body part and will never understand the need to Facebook or Tweet I certainly do not like to go out of the house without my phone. I've a soft-addiction to it. I take for granted being able to communicate instantly and the ability to get any piece of information or important document I need quick, fast, and in a hurry.
