"My question is, me having almost 50 feet of rope out, weighing 135 plus a relatively large aid rack, and falling almost 1/3 of the pitch is not enough energy to activate a screamer?

Not necessarily, if there is enough friction with the rope running through those 16 pieces to reduce the eventual load to the belay anchor to approximately the screamer activation level. If the screamer has been on the top piece that held you, I think you'd have seen substantial extension.
