Can anyone let me know the difference between these two sentences?
"I google for all sorts of stuff."
"I google for all sort of stuffs."
Thanks.

    It's a General Rule, yes ~ if all is being used to mean 'multiple units of, each and every one of':
    all kinds of stuff
    all the children in this room

    If all is being used to mean 'the whole of ... considered as a single unit', it can be a singular noun, though:
    All mankind will rejoice
    Abandon all hope

    (Isn't English infuriating?:()
