You often hear "stuffs".  Too bad that it's incorrect.  One of the most common errors is saying "slangs".  It makes perfect sense in Portuguese, but it makes no sense at all in Englsh.  I often hear "bucks" too.  "Buck" is never plural when talking about money, only when talking about male deer.  You may notice that "deer" is yet another word without a plural form.  And the list goes on and on.
