I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, because the answer I'm hoping I'll get is "that's normal, go away".

I ran an mtr on wikipedia (first site that came into my head) and noticed what seems to uneducated me as absurdly high loss - 57% and 24% respectively.

The first column is the loss.

Is this normal?

Under most circumstances it's normal. Many key routers on the internet will drop or give a lower priority to ICMP packets (such as ping and tracert). This can result in packet loss for ICMP connections.
