Okay according to Relativity, it's not possible for me to perform an experiment that would prove that I'm moving, or if I'm feeling gravity to prove that I'm standing on a massive object (like Earth) or accelerating.

You meter stick would shorten just as much as the ship does.

I'm not measuring the LENGTH of my ship. I'm measuring the angle between side "A" and the hypotenuses of my triangle shaped ship. As I approach the speed of light the ship and as you say, the length measuring tool would shorten, but only in the direction of travel. The ship would not become any less wide, so if I measure the angles they would no longer be the same as when I started.

As long as they rest on the rockets floor you should be correct but assuming two masses in parallel geodesics, in a otherwise gravitationally 'empty space', they will attract each other.

I'm slow Lb

The way to test for a external gravity, is to assume yourself inside that box, free floating (weightless), and then watch your stones geodesics relative that perfect box, as described form the inside, the way they 'attract' each other, or not.
