4.
Finely granulated shit in the form of shale which has settled at the bottom of the toilet for a while which has hardened into a form of slate, hence shate. This can be seen in some toilets as it's known to be unflushable without the help of a toilet brush and some people don't bother cleaning their toilets so they have shate forming on the bowl.
