comment Is it possible for one of a pair of muscles to feel the burn more than the other muscle in the pair?
+1 Yes. It's normal for the muscles on one side of the body to be conditioned differently than the other. Also, it's possible that the parameters of the exercise may be different from one muscle to the next. Maybe one leg is slightly longer than the other (it's not that unusual!), maybe the curl machine is tilted slightly so one side has better leverage.

comment How deep should a squat be?
@friz is right. Although you should be careful that your knees don't stick out father than your toes, your knees will by necessity move forward a bit when you squat. Because of that, stopping when you reach a 90 degree angle between your shins and femur would mean that you actually don't quite reach parallel with the ground.

Awesome answer. I was going to ask a question similar to the OP's, and thanks to you I don't have to now.

comment Can I gain weight using diet, running and resistance training?
+1. Agreed. If you want to gain muscle, lift weights. A full weight program is preferable but at least do barbell squats. If you don't want to join a gym, a squat rack, barbell, and several hundreds lbs of weights can be had for less than $500 brand new. And you could potentially buy from a garage sale and get them for a lot less.
