'Thing', to me, implies some organization, some structure. The bloody 'thing' I stepped on, while not recognizable as a particular (kind of) animal, 'was' an animal, had some (remaining) structure, and so, to me, was a 'thing'.

'Stuff', on the other hand, to me, is just 'stuff' poop, or blood, or vomit....there's no structure to it, just a lump of, a pool of, a splash of, 'stuff'.

Now, I'm just takin' about organics here, what you might run across in your backyard or in the woods (or, your toilet or tub). 'Thing' and 'stuff' get cast different, for me, when we're talkin' about made or built 'things' or 'stuff'.
